Strawberry Cheese Ring Appetizer
This appetizer creates a pretty display for a party and guests love it!
sharp cheddar cheese
grated (4 cups)
package cream cheese
chopped pecans or walnuts
garlic salt or powder
Cayenne pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients except preserves in a food processor or electric mixer.
Mix thoroughly and refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
Scoop mixture onto a platter.
Use your hands to mold mixture into a ring formation
Add strawberry preserves in center of ring and serve with crackers
*Note: When I make this for parties, I also add chopped nuts all over the surface.
If you're having a smaller gathering, cut the ingredients in half and make a smaller cheese ring. It looks and taste just as yummy.
