cheddar bacon ranch cheese ball
(makes 2 cheese balls)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 (8oz) packages of softened cream cheese
1 cup chopped bacon or real bacon bits
1 envelope hidden valley ranch dressing mix
1 cup chopped pecans
combine the first four ingredients and mix well. divide in half, round each side and cover with plastic wrap. place in the freezer for about 15 minutes. remove plastic wrap and roll in the chopped pecans until completely covered. tightly re-wrap with a new piece of plastic wrap.
This is the recipe I used to make the pinecone. Just minus the pecans and add almonds and fresh rosemary to your shopping list.
