I tried this over the weekend. I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese, and added a couple of drops of tabasco sause, otherwise made as directed. Very tasty. Next time, I'm going to double the onion. Bf thought it was very good. I didn't try to roll into a ball as it appeared to be a difficult task. Just put into a container and chilled before eating.

My Mother made this for years for Christmas Eve. The whole family loved it.

Love it. So easy to make and super delicious. I did not care for the flavor or the lemon juice in this, so I don't add that anymore. I like a lot of onion, so I grate about 1/2 medium onion into the mix with my zester. YUM! Delicous over crunchy garlic toasts...

This is the best, and so easy to make. I ended up having to make two batches because my family ate it all before the guests arrived. It was a big hit at the party. I'll be making this over and over again. Thanks for sharing. PS didn't change a thing, although, I might add a bit more onion the next batch.

Didn't deviate from the recipe, and we thoroughly enjoyed this. Do allow it to sit in the fridge for a while for the flavors to meld. Very nice!

Very easy and tasty. I served them in little mini philo cups and sprinkled minced chives on them. The only change up I did was to sub the lemon juice for hot sauce. Thank you for this recipe.
