We had a neighbor named Brenda Remlinger who gave me this recipe back when the boys were in grade school and I have made it many times. It is especially good served with Sociables Crackers.
2, 8 Oz. bars of cream cheese
1 large can of crushed pineapple drained through a strainer then pressed on paper towels several times until it is very dry.
|Drained and Dried Pineapple.|
2 T. drained pimentos
1/2 C. finely chopped walnuts
1 C. rough chopped walnuts
Combine the cream cheese, pineapple, shallots and finely chopped walnuts until well mixed. Then fold in the pimento.
Place 2 large sheets of plastic wrap on a work surface forming a large cross. Plop the cream cheese mixture in the center of the cross and gather up the wrap (with your hands under it) forming the cheese into a ball.
Refrigerate until serving time. Serve with assorted crackers and crisp vegetables.
