Appetizers & Snacks

Pear and Pecan Cheese Ball

Jump to recipe

I adapted this recipe from one that I found on Eating Well.  It makes a perfect, quick and easy appetizer for gameday and yet it is sophisticated enough for a dinner party.  You can change things up a bit depending on your personal tastes.  For example, you could substitute finely minced apples for the pear, or ripe pineapple.

You could also serve it with a crusty bread instead of crackers.  The first time I made it, my husband ate half the entire cheese ball in the first fifteen minutes.
