I made this cheese ring for a ladies brunch. It looked lovely and very festive. I served it on a crystal round platter and wish I could post a picture. The only change I made was to use chopped green onion instead of regular onion. I shaped the ring in a ring mold and used the strawberry preserves like a glaze and drizzled on top. bratty_1, thanks for posting this recipe.

I had a tupperware party tonight and served this with ritz crackers. It is soooooo good! Everyone loved it. I must have given the recipe to at least 20 people. Thanks for posting this recipe.

I made this for a strawberry themed luncheon I catered and everyone loved it and wanted the recipe! In order to make it into a ring, I lined a bundt cake pan with saran wrap and pressed the cream cheese mixture into it evenly and put it in the refrigerator for a few hours. I inverted it on a platter and it turned out perfectly. I'll definitely be making this again. Thank you for posting!

I love this recipe and have made it for years. I make mine a little bit differently, though. I leave off the jam and sometimes i make mine into a cheese ball instead of a cheese ring. I also only use half of the pecans in the recipe and then i use the other half on the outside. It tastes the same. It's a favorite with my family and our guests. A+

I made this for our Zaar appetizer cookathon. Cut the recipe by half and made a 'mini ring' The sweetness of the preserves is a lovely contrast to the cheese and onion mix, and looks pretty good too! Thanks for a keeper recipe!

I have made this a few times and there are never any leftovers. Although I usually add more creamcheese than this recipie calls for.

A player on my tennis team brought this once for refreshments, and the players on the other team keep remembering us for that delicious appetizer, We all rave for this yum yum.

Made for a doctors Christmas party last night and it was a real hit. Don't think many took advantage of the strawberry preserves, but I thought it was great with it. I just had trouble with blending it all in the Vida Mixer. Need to add items slowly because it is hard to get mixed up. Thanks so much for posting.

Very, very good! I was only serving 10 people- I kept all the amounts the same, but only used 12 oz. cheddar cheese. Turned out great, and was just about the right amount for us!
