Leah's Story

A long time ago I ate a cranberry cheese ball that I had made from a mix that I bought. I loved it! Well I have no way of getting that mix anymore, so I came up with my own recipe. It is sweet and tart. This isn't your average cheese ball! You will love to serve this at your next holiday gathering!

I've made this recipe for Christmas, Thanksgiving & Easter for about 5-6 years now. The difference is I always put chopped pecans inside the cheese ball it self also, & I've never caramelized the peacans before. I'll be trying that this year, my family loves this Cheese Ball!
