Pecan Cream Cheese Ball

Do you always buy your cheese balls from the store?
STOP IT!
There are too many great homemade recipes out there for you to be buying a prepackaged, mystery ball.  This appetizer is SO good and perfect on top of your favorite cracker.

My mom makes this every Christmas Eve.  In our family, there isn't an actual meal served on Christmas Eve.  We simply fill up on Summer sausage, cheese, crackers, this cheese ball, and shrimp cocktail.  Hoosiers... ...

  1. This is beautiful- I could practically live on cream cheese and pecans, so I am a convert! This is the perfect recipe for Christmas Eve, game day, New Year's Eve- I can think of several times this would be great!

    Visiting from SITS Sharefest! :)

  3. Looks Yum! We usually have ham and fruit salad during Christmas. And a lot of dessert, I don't know why but we serve a lot of sweets during the holidays.

    1. Hey Dwayne! I've never tried it with Parmesan. This recipe makes a pretty large cheese ball, so I'd split the recipe in half, using Parm in one and Cheddar in the other - to try it out.
