When I set one of these appetizers out on a plate with knife and crackers, it draws a crowd! It disappears so fast, I keep a spare in the refrigerator, and a couple in the freezer for the holidays.

  • Divide mixture into 2 balls using wet hands. Wrap balls in waxed paper and refrigerate until cool and firm, about 1 hour. Smooth and shape; roll firmly in chopped filberts. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve, at least 1 hour. Garnish each cheese ball with 1 cherry half and parsley 1 hour before serving.

Cook's Note:

If tightly wrapped, they will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. If you want to freeze up to 3 months, use butter in the mixture to keep the thawed product smooth and creamy.
