I first saw this recipe in Southern Living's Christmas Cookbook. It has been a favorite for years. It makes an impressive appetizer for a party as is or I have also made it into a cheese ball. I double the cream cheese, set aside walnuts, and reduce milk. Mix everything else well. Chill till firm enough to form into a ball and then roll in finely chopped walnuts. Delicious either way. Using fresh parmesan (as opposed to the really dry stuff that comes in a can) makes a real difference in the quality of this recipe.
