This is a tried-and-true recipe I've had for about 20 years and get rave reviews every time I make it. Don't let the name fool you, nobody ever figures out pineapple is the secret ingredient! I always buy the pecans already ground, the finer texture works better.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Blend all ingredients together. Refrigerate several hours or overnight. Shape into a ball and roll in additional ground pecans to coat. Serve with crackers (Sociables poppyseed crackers go well.).
  2. Hint: For chilling, line a small mixing bowl with a large piece of plastic wrap. Scoop the cheese mixture into the plastic and fold the excess plastic wrap over the top. When mixture is chilled, gradually unwrap as you roll in the ground pecans. This will keep your fingers from getting sticky and makes it much easier to handle.
