I felt that there was too much butter in this recipe. I did not care for it, and I will not be making it again.
i HAVE MADE CHEESE BALLS EVERY YEAR FOR 20 YEARS AND WHEN I TRIED THIS NEW RECIPIE LAST YEAR; WELL IT WAS "THE BEST THEY EVER TASTED". SIMPLY WODERFUL AND FESTIVE.
My mother made this Cheese Ball for all her entertaining from the early 50's to the present and I continue to use it. I receive rave reviews whenever I make it. The only difference is in the amount of butter - I use only 1 cup as opposed to the 1 pound in this recipe. Men especially love this with the heady blue cheesy flavor.
