Blue Ribbon Recipe
We love a delicious cheese ball recipe during the holiday's and this one is delightful. It's sweet from the pineapple with a bit of tartness from the cranberries. Super creamy, the saltiness from the cheddar cheese balances out the sweetness from the fruit. Pecans with their nuttiness and crunch are perfect. Serve with slices of toasted baguette and you have an impressive and easy party appetizer. The Test Kitchen
