30 Days of Pumpkin - Day 20 The Great Pumpkin Cheese Ball

Welcome to Day 20 of 30 Days of Pumpkin.  I really wanted to bring you a pumpkin cheese ball in my 30 days.  I searched the internet for the perfect one.   My good friend at The Review Wire, happened to have the perfect Pumpkin cheese ball on her site.

This cheese ball was originally adapted from Gooseberry Patch, a recipe book publisher that I happen to have a few recipes published in their cookbooks!    Here is the recipe for The Great Pumpkin Cheese Ball.  Be sure to visit The Review Wire for even more pumpkin recipes! 

The Great Pumpkin Cheese Ball
8-oz. pkg. cream cheese,
10-oz. container sharp
Cheddar cold-pack
cheese spread
1/4 c. crumbled blue cheese
2 t. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 t. celery salt
1/4 t. onion salt
1/2 c. walnuts, finely
1 t. paprika
Garnish: 1 pretzel rod, broken in half
or stem from a mini pumpkin,
assorted crackers
Blend together cheeses until smooth. Stir in Worcestershire sauce, celery salt and onion salt, adding more to taste if desired. Shape into a ball and set on serving plate; cover and chill for 2 to 3 hours, until firm. If desired, score vertical lines with a knife to resemble a pumpkin. Toss walnuts with paprika; press into surface of cheese ball. Break pretzel rod in half and insert in top for a stem. Use a real stem, if desired. Just rinse and insert in the top of the cheese ball. Arrange crackers around cheese ball. Serves 10 to 12.
