I made this one for Christmas and it was perfect for just such an occasion. Rosemary and Thyme have both always reminded me of the smell of pine trees and everyone kept saying they tasted just like Christmas. Perfect! The honey works to soften up the otherwise coarse cheeses and helped create a creamy finish. Total genius.
