I am posting this recipe because it is my very favorite cheese ball ever. You are going to love it. Yes, the prep takes a little while but it is so worth it. Please follow directions carefully for success. Please do not do it with a processor as you want distinctive pieces of stuff. It is a very pretty cheese ball. Cook time is refrigeration time.

I have sent in a correction but thought this might make it through first. You need to add a small can of crushed pineapple, well drained and well dryed with paper towels.
