A group of ladies that I exercise with recently had a luncheon where we all bring something. I made this pumpkin shaped cheese ball using my favorite cheese ball recipe. This would be a nice appetizer for Thanksgiving.
I have to confess that I forgot to take a picture with the cilantro and had to come home after the party, and reshape the leftovers over a glass custard cup! The crackers are Trader Joe's Cranberry Pumpkin ones and they are perfect for this time of the year.
Here's my nice, full pumpkin. I used a green pepper stem for the top of the pumpkin and for the vine used some cilantro, but parsley would be nice, too.
For the Cheese Ball:
1 tub Garden Vegetable cream cheese
1 tub Onion and Chive cream cheese
1 cup grated cheese (I used a Mexican blend)
3 green onion, sliced
1 green pepper stem
a couple of sprigs of cilantro
Mix ingredients all together and shape into a ball, and wrap with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for two hours or over night. Take out and shape into a pumpkin. Score down the sides to resemble a pumpkin and place the green pepper stem on top, and add a couple of sprigs of cilantro.
