Almond Pinecone
Ingredients:

* 1 1/2 Cups almonds - toasted
* 1/2 Cup mayonnaise
* 8 oz cream cheese
* 5 slices bacon - cooked, minced
* 1 Tbsp. scallion
* 1/2 tsp dill (optional)
* white pepper to taste

Toast almonds and set aside. Combine all other ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Chill for at least 1 hour. Form the cream cheese mixture into the shape of a pinecone. Beginning at the bottom, gently press the almonds in rows across the pinecone shape. Continue the rows until the whole shape is covered, and resembles a pinecone. Either eat immediately or refrigerate. Allow to come up to room temperature before serving. Garnish with greens.
