Pineapple and Cream Cheese Ball

4.6
(7)

This is a simple, fast, and easy holiday cheese ball recipe. It will remind you of your childhood if you are of a vintage age. If you loved the taste of Kraft® pineapple cheese spread on a Ritz® cracker this will really bring back comfort food memories. Makes a great potluck dish for parties. This is a big favorite at the holidays. I like to serve this with Chicken in a Biscuit® type of cracker, but your favorite crackers will do very nicely.

  • 1 (16 ounce) can crushed pineapple, well drained

  2. Set ball on a piece of plastic wrap. Wrap plastic wrap tightly around ball and place in a small bowl. Refrigerate ball to allow flavors to blend, at least 30 minutes.

  3. Serve cheese ball on a bed of chopped parsley.

Cook's Note:

If you or anyone you know is allergic to walnuts, any kind of nut pieces will work. Walnuts are the traditional flavor.
