{Pinecone Cheeseball}

Christmas isn't Christmas without our mom's Pinecone Cheeseball. No holiday season has passed without this appetizer's presence. The flavors mix perfectly, even though they might seem (at first glace) a little odd for cheeseball ingredients. But trust me...it's delicious. It's really easy to make and always impresses guests.

{Pinecone Cheeseball}
2 8-oz bricks cream cheese
1/2 packet Ranch Dressing dry seasoning mix
1 12-oz can crushed pineapple, drained very well
Whole roasted almonds

Mix ingredients together in a medium bowl. Scoop onto your serving dish, and with the back of a spoon, shape into the shape of a pinecone:

Starting at the bottom, stick almonds in (pointed side in), layering as you go up:


Add some sprigs of evergreen and a festive bow and you have an impressive holiday appetizer!

This looks delicious. In my family we mix sour cream and a ranch dressing packet for a yummy vegi dip. I may just have to try this. I must say - I am a new follower and just love your blog! You two do a wonderful job coming up with great ideas!
