VHF: Cranberry & Nut Cheeseball
I saw this cream cheeseball with dried cranberries and pistachios on the outside on Pinterest somewhere, but I can't find the post. I think it was a recipe from the 1960s or 70s. (Posts I am interested in and thought I Pinned keep disappearing from Pinterest. Has this happened to anyone else?)
What I used:
- Philadelphia cream cheese (1 package)
- Dried Cranberries
- Almonds (I thought I had some pistachios around, but they disappeared, so I just used almonds for some crunch)
- Plastic gloves
I used some gloves to mold the cream cheese into a ball. It's like sculpting clay, but it's cream cheese. Haha! :) Then I covered it with dried cranberries and almonds.
You get some nice tartness from the cranberries, almonds give some crunch -- with some creaminess from cream cheese.
Yum! Easy fun snack or appetizer!
Give it a try! We are good at this!
