Fall weekends seem to fill up quickly with festive gatherings with family & friends. We love taking this cheese ball to parties & potlucks and, for these special occasions, it's fun to add a stem from a real mini pumpkin. Just snap it off, rinse and insert into the top of the cheese ball...so easy!
8-oz. pkg. cream cheese,
10-oz. container sharp
1/4 c. crumbled blue cheese
2 t. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 t. celery salt
1/4 t. onion salt
1/2 c. walnuts, finely
1 t. paprika
Garnish: 1 pretzel rod, broken in half
or stem from a mini pumpkin,
Blend together cheeses until smooth. Stir in Worcestershire sauce, celery salt and onion salt, adding more to taste if desired. Shape into a ball and set on serving plate; cover and chill for 2 to 3 hours, until firm. If desired, score vertical lines with a knife to resemble a pumpkin. Toss walnuts with paprika; press into surface of cheese ball. Break pretzel rod in half and insert in top for a stem. Use a real stem, if desired. Just rinse and insert in the top of the cheese ball. Arrange crackers around cheese ball. Serves 10 to 12.
