Pineapple Cheese Ball with Craisins

Debby Nelson Recipe

By Debby Nelson annazzassi

I sometimes shape this like a pinecone and layer with whole almonds during the holidays - it always gets favorable comments.

You can use any dried fruit in place of the craisins.

Serve with nice assortment of crackers like Triscuits©, Sociables©, Ritz©, or any of your favorites.
