yield: SERVES 6


  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened campaignIcon Chill
  • 8 ounces good quality sharp white cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups dried cranberries
  • crackers


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the pecans in an even layer. Bake for about 5 minutes and then remove from the oven.
  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese and the cheddar cheese. Add in the pecans, salt, and the Worcestershire sauce. Continue mixing for another minute or two until everything is well-combined. Remove the mixture from the bowl and form into a ball with your hands. Wrap the formed ball in plastic wrap and chill for about 30 minutes.
  2. Remove the chilled cheese ball. Using small handfuls at a time, place dried cranberries all over the cheese ball, pushing in lightly to secure them into place. Try to cover as much of the cheese ball as possible (except the bottom). Serve or cover and place back into the fridge until serving. Serve with crackers.
