    Jaime in Winnipeg's Note:

    I found this recipe in Kraft's 'What's Cooking' magazine. It is very impressive looking, so I decided I had to try it.

    Yield:

    cheese ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 250 g package cream cheese, softened (light works fine)
    • 473.18 ml shredded cheddar cheese (the recipe calls for tex mex cheese, but I used medium cheddar, and I'm sure swiss would work well,)
    • 29.58 ml Dijon mustard
    • 29.58 ml chopped canned green chilies
    • 78.07 ml sliced almonds, toasted

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix cream cheese, shredded cheese, and Dijon mustard in a blender or food processor until well blended.
    2. 2
      Stir in green chilies.
    3. 3
      Place in freezer for 20 minutes so that it is easier to handle and shape.
    4. 4
      Remove from freezer and place on wax paper.
    5. 5
      Shape into what resembles a pinecone.
    6. 6
      Stick the almonds into the cheese ball in rows that completely cover the cheese ball.
    7. 7
      Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
    8. 8
      Let the cheese ball stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.
    9. 9
      Serve with crackers.

      I made two of these for an outdoor-themed wedding reception. One with Pepper Jack cheese and one with Cheddar (omitting the chilis for that one). They were a HUGE hit!! :) Easy to make ahead of time and very yummy! The only thing is that I thought they were going to be bigger. Thanks for sharing.

      This is soo very good!! Wasn't too spicy either...just right for me. I used whole almonds, because the sliced weren't pretty. Thanks, Jaime, it's a keeper!
