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

This is very simple, and a little bit different than your typical cheese ball. The flavors really do meld well together.

I loved this! Sweet and cheesy.

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...

This cheeseball is the best! It goes great on toast points
