      This is a nice variation to the cheese ball recipe I have used for years. The cranberries are a nice change.

      I made this twice over the holidays. The first time I used spreadable cream cheese, as the store was out of the packages. The second time I used the package. I much preferred the spreadable cream cheese, as it makes for a creamier cheese ball that was ready to use as soon as it came from the refrigerator.
      The brandy added a nice hint of flavor as well.
