Pine cone cheese ball recipe

Pine cone cheeseball

If you need a little extra something for your holiday table, this might be just the thing! How fun is this?! A pine cone cheese ball, made of herbed cream cheese and decorated with toasted almonds. It’s so simple that your kids could help you decorate it, but so clever your guests will love it. You have to admit it’s much nicer than a cheese ball straight out of the package, which is my own tried-and-true family tradition. (Yes… we also rock the cranberry sauce with can lines.) ; )

      Yes! You've got to have the sauce in the can! And the green beans with onions, and they can't be GOURMET onions, they have to be the cheap-o ones : )

      You could craft a tiny and festive velvet rope to put around it! If anyone could pull that off, it'd be you!! : )

      They definitely do! : ) I'd just serve both. That's how my family does it for cranberry sauce... my mom makes sauce from scratch but also serves the kind in the can. They're both good, in their own way ; )
