This recipe is from a cookbook that came with a Sears food processor. That was about 30 years ago. The food processor is long gone, but the recipe lives on. I haven't made this for company in years, but I occasionally make it for myself. Instead of making it into a ball, I put the mixture into a covered bowl and serve myself from that. I like it on some crackers for lunch or as a bedtime snack.

  1. Cut cheese into strips that will fit into chute of food processor.

  10. Form into a ball; wrap in plastic and chill thoroughly.

Nice change from regular cream-cheese cheese balls. I chilled for about 2 hours before serving, but overnight would have melded the flavors together better. Thank you for sharing!
