Fall Favs

Can you tell how much I am loving Fall and all the treats that come with it? And, Did you know that I love CHEESE. All kinds of cheese. I like stilton blue with a bit of lavender and honey. I like goat cheese with spiced almonds and honey, and of course, Mozzarella Caprice. My mouth is watering as we discuss this. So, I came upon this cute recipe and wanted to share it with you all. Happy Fall!

Shopping List (recipe from Betty Crocker)

About 8 Tablespoons smoked Cheddar cold packed cheese (from 8-oz container),well chilled

pretzel sticks, broken in half

Roll each tablespoon of cold pack cheese into a ball; place on waxed paper-lined serving plate.

Refrigerate 10 to 15 minutes for easier handling.

With end of toothpick, draw ridges around balls to resemble pumpkins. Dip bottoms of cheese balls in chopped peanuts. (or the nut of your choice)

Just before serving, insert pretzel halves into cheese balls for pumpkin stems and place on a cracker. Decorate with parsley for leaves. Store in the refrigerator.
