The holiday season is about family and creating memories. I can’t have any big gatherings due to the current circumstance. I decided to have a movie night with my loved ones while enjoying cheese and wine.
One of my friends from my book club has shared her onion-cranberry-pecan cheese recipe with me. Tonight, I decided to give it a try and spice it up with some pepper flakes. It was the highlight of my cheese board.
This is what you need to make your own onion-cranberry-pecan cheese ball
8 oz cream cheese softened
2 cups mozzarella shredded cheese
¼ cup green onion shredded
1 cup craisins
1 cup pecans chopped and toasted
¼ chopped parsley (I used parsley flakes)
¼ tsp pepper flakes
Leave the cream cheese out for about 1 hr.
Stir together the cream cheese and the mozzarella shredded cheese until they are evenly combined.
Mix the Craisins, green onions, parsley, and pepper flakes. Form the cheese into a ball.
Spread the pecan in a sheet.
Roll the cheese ball on the pecans until it’s completely coated with pecans.
Cover the cheese ball in a plastic wrap and refrigerate for 6 hours before serving.
This cheese ball will be the center of my cheese platter.
Wherever you are, be safe, be well, and Happy Holiday Season!
