Christmas isn't Christmas without our mom's Pinecone Cheeseball. No holiday season has passed without this appetizer's presence.

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!
