HOLIDAY CHEESE BALL PINECONE

This takes a little while to make, but it is fun, and SO worth the effort! It certainly gets its share of ooh's and ahh's. Made from a delcious cheese spread, and the cone is made of sliced or whole almonds, and garnished with a stem of cinnamon and rosemary pine needles. Take a bow and enjoy!
