Yummy Chicken Liver Pate

The few times I tasted pate, I wasn't exactly a fan. That is, until I discovered this recipe. I love it! (Of course, anything with cream cheese has GOT to be good!).
Although probably not a "traditional" pate, this is quite tasty!
I spread this on water crackers - mmmm!
I have included the Brandied Aspic that came with the recipe, although I haven't tried it (don't usually have Brandy on hand, and too cheap to buy it for one recipe) I don't doubt that it is equally tasty. If any of you do try the aspic, please let me know how you like it!
In a pretty jar, this would make a lovely gift!

Ingredients

1/3 c
onion, finely chopped
1/4 c
(1/2 stick) butter (no substitutes)
1 lb
chicken livers
3
hard-cooked eggs, quartered
1 pkg
(8 ounce) cream cheese, cut into 6 - 8 chunks
1/4 c
fresh parsley, finely chopped
3/4 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
pepper
brandied aspic (recipe follows)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Saute onion in butter in a large skillet until soft; remove with a slotted spoon to the container of an electric blender. Place livers in skillet and cook over medium heat until barely pink inside, about 10 minutes. Do not overcook.
2
Add liver to onions in blender a little at a time; whirl after each addition until smooth. Add eggs and cream cheese gradually. Continue to whirl until mixture is smooth. Stir in parsley, salt and pepper.
3
Transfer mixture to a 3-cup crock or jar. Cover with plastic wrap. Chill in refrigerator.
4
While mixture is chilling, prepare Brandied Aspic.

Decorate pate with pimento, parsley and pickles. Spoon aspic over (if using). Chill until firm.
5
Brandied Aspic: Sprinkle two teaspoons (from an envelope) of unflavored gelatin over 1/2 cup of canned beef broth in a small saucepan. Stir; let stand to softened for 5 minutes. Heat over very low heat, stirring constantly until gelatin dissolves. Remove from heat; add one tablespoon Brandy; pour into a small bowl. Chill until syrupy.
