Pine Cone Shape Cheese Ball

Submitted by

Every party where I have a chance to make this appetizer I do. Christmas, New Years, birthday parties, it's always a hit. We started making this back in college when we didn't know how to cook, but it tastes so good we never stopped making it.


2 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
3 pkg. Buddig beef, chopped
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
Green Onion, chopped (about 5 stake or to taste)
Dash of white pepper
Dash of onion powder
Dash of garlic powder
1 package sliced almonds
1 package whole almonds


Mix the cream cheese with chopped beef. Add the Worcestershire sauce. Add onions, dry ingredients and mix well. Chill for hour or overnight. Form cheese mixture into a pinecone shape. Insert sliced and whole almonds onto cheese. Add sprig of fresh Rosemary on top for decoration. Serve with crackers.
