How to Make Christmas Cheese Mold
- Allow the cheddar cheese and cream cheese to come to room temperature.In a large bowl combine the cheddar cheese,cream cheese, chopped onions, tobasco,and chopped pecans. Work the ingredients together using your hands. Once thoroughly mixed, the mixture can then be pressed into a mold.
- Chill 2 to 3 hours before serving or you can freeze for later use. When you are ready to serve, remove from the mold, place on a platter, and pour the desired amount of strawberry preserves over the top. Also the sides of the cheese mold can be garnished with coarsely chopped pecans gently pressed into its sides.
- Hint: Generally cheeses should be served at room temperature, about 70*, to bring out the flavor.
