Cheese Ball

Baby Shower Recipe-I had a chip and dip bowl that I didn't want to put dip in, so I decided to go with a cheese ball and crackers.  I found the recipe on Martha Stewart's website.  This was my first cheese ball and it was pretty easy.  I know there are tons of cheese ball variations out there and I'm looking forward to making them.  Enjoy! 


  • 1 pound cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, finely grated (about 2 1/2 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Ground pepper
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans


  1. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat cream cheese with cheddar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and a generous pinch of pepper until well combined. Mix in 1/4 cup pecans. Cover cheese mixture with plastic wrap, and chill at least 2 1/2 hours or up to overnight.
  2. Divide the cheese mixture in half, and shape each half into a ball. Spread remaining 3/4 cup pecans on a plate, and roll balls in pecans to coat completely, pressing nuts to adhere. Serve chilled.
