Nutty Cheese Ball

This is a favorite every year around the Holiday and we just do appetizers for New Years Eve. So here is an easy one that goes along way for any party.




















1/2 pound Sharp Cheddar shredded
1/2 pound of Swiss Cheese shredded
1 package of Cream Cheese softened
2 teaspoons of Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 teaspoon Paprika
1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons of Sweet Marsala

Assorted nuts, you will need at least 3/4 of a cup of them chopped and mixed together
1/4 walnuts chopped or pecans
1/4 cups sliced almonds
1/4 cup finely chopped pistachio nuts or macadamia nuts
Beat cheeses and spices with a flat beater on high speed, and then at the end add the wine continuing to use an electric stand mixer, beat till smooth. Note: If the cheese is not at room temperature and shredded fine enough it will take longer to beat smooth. Shape into a ball, pour nuts on wax paper and roll cheese ball into nuts to coat well.
Wrap in the wax paper and refrigerate until serving. Serve with assorted flavored crackers.
