|Thanksgiving pumpkin cheese ball!|
Oh, and if that wasn't great enough...you can use virtually any cheese ball recipe for this appetizer. Obviously I used the best one: the Fiesta Cheese Ball.
Fiesta Cheese Ball (original recipe)
1. Combine everything but the paprika. Add food coloring to get a light pumpkin color. Refrigerate overnight to let the flavors marry and allow the cream cheese to harden up so the cheese can be shaped into a ball. (Save some green onion stems and pairs of cilantro leaves for garnish)
2. After refrigeration, form the cheese into a ball. Sprinkle with paprika to cover. Lightly slice some vertical lines into the ball to simulate pumpkin ridges. Press down from the top to give it a pumpkin shape. Finish the pumpkin with green onion stems and cilantro leaves.
