pesto I made last summer and froze in a 1/2 cup Rubbermaid container. I just thawed it out and spread the whole thing on top of the garlic. (Time to plant some more basil!)
You can serve this cold, but it's so much better when warmed up. You're not really cooking it but just warming it up so that the cream cheese gets all soft and all the flavors blend. Also, it's good with other crackers or chips like Pita chips, but it is best with the New York Style Sea Salt Bagel Crisps - trust me on this! They just go together perfectly -and those bagel crisps can hold a lot of dip.
