Here’s a fun and easy twist on the traditional cheese ball that will be a perfect fit for your holidaytable! Though you might think of cheese balls as being strictly savory starters, this one turns that idea on its head. Sweet and creamy, with familiar holiday flavors of ginger and pumpkin spice, thischeese ball is served at the end of the meal!
And it couldn’t be easier. Simply blend your ingredients, shape into a ball and chill. Roll in ground gingersnaps and serve! Perfect accompaniments are sliced apples and pears, pretzels, graham crackers or Nilla wafers.
