I am sure you can appreciate just how busy the season becomes this time of year! Not only is it Christmas and thus extra decorating, entertaining and celebrating–but I also work in retail-aaaaggghhhh!
Here is another great appetizer recipe–for those days when you need something impressive, on a very short time schedule!
Pecan Cheese Ball
1/2 pkg cream cheese (brick, not container) at room temp.
1 cup shredded cheese (preferable old cheddar or another type of sharp cheese)
1/4 tsp cracked pepper
1 tsp Cajun seasoning
1 cup finely chopped pecans
Combine all ingredients except nuts and mix well. Shape into a ball and roll in nuts. Press nuts in lightly until completely coated. Serve with your favourite crackers.
Tip: this is a great one to make ahead, or to split into 2 small balls. Make sure you take it out of the fridge and leave it to warm to up to room temp for serving!
