Recipes from AlansKitchen.comMakes 24 (2 cheese balls) servings

Prep Time: 20 min.
Chilling Time: 2 hrs.

Ingredients:

  •    2  packages (3 ounces each) cream cheese, softened

  •    2  Tablespoons finely chopped onions

  •    1  teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 1/4  teaspoon ground mustard

  •    2  cups shredded Cheddar cheese (8 ounces)

  • Paprika

  • Cinnamon sticks and fresh sage leaves, if desired

  • Assorted crackers, if desired

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, onion, Worcestershire sauce and mustard until blended.  Mix in Cheddar cheese.  Cover and refrigerate about 2 hours or until firm enough to shape.  Divide cheese mixture in half.

  2. Shape 1 half into a ball on waxed paper.  Sprinkle another piece of waxed paper with paprika.  Roll cheese ball in paprika, coating thoroughly.  Mold into apple shape. Repeat with remaining cheese mixture.  To garnish, make small depression in stem ends of apples.

  3. Cut 2 small pieces from cinnamon stick.  Insert cinnamon stick pieces for stems.  Insert sage leaves.  Serve cheese balls with crackers.

Alan's Kitchen Tip:

  • Cheese balls can be stored tightly covered in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks or in freezer up to 4 weeks. Thaw frozen cheese balls in the refrigerator about 6 hours before serving.
