This is really good. I served it on Father's day as an apppetizer and I had to print out the recipe for everyone! Instead of making it into a ball form I used a small bundt pan to shape it. I spooned the strawberry preserves into the hole in the center. Made for a very pretty presentation. Give it a try! Read More

I made this for a retirement party and it was a big hit. Instead of strawberry preserves I used raspberry jam. Read More

Too salty and still not sure if I will serve it a the party I made it for. After tasting I wanted to throw it away but a few mins later I wanted more...so who knows. I ate a few crackers more and seem to sort of like it...we'll see what the party people say.... Read More
