Surprise them with the fun Cheddar and cream cheese spread that you shape to look like an apple!

Ingredients

2
packages (3 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
2
tablespoons finely chopped onions
1
teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4
teaspoon ground mustard
2
cups shredded Cheddar cheese (8 ounces)
Paprika
Cinnamon sticks and fresh sage leaves, if desired
Assorted crackers, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Beat cream cheese, onion, Worcestershire sauce and mustard in large bowl until blended. Mix in Cheddar cheese. Cover and refrigerate about 2 hours or until firm enough to shape.
  • 2 Divide cheese mixture in half. Shape 1 half into a ball on waxed paper. Sprinkle another piece of waxed paper with paprika. Roll cheese ball in paprika, coating thoroughly. Mold into apple shape. Repeat with remaining cheese mixture.
  • 3 To garnish, make small depression in stem ends of apples. Cut 2 small pieces from cinnamon stick. Insert cinnamon stick pieces for stems. Insert sage leaves. Serve cheese balls with crackers.

Expert Tips

Sliced apples make a fun addition to this appetizer. Toss them with lemon juice to prevent browning.

Cheese balls can be stored tightly covered in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks or in freezer up to 4 weeks. Thaw frozen cheese balls in the refrigerator about 6 hours before serving.
