Cheese Balls!!

At my family get-togethers cheese balls and crackers are must haves!!  Here are our two favorites, one sweet and one savory.

Pimento Cheese Ball
2 jars pimento cheese spread (kraft)
2 pkgs (8 oz) cream cheese softened
minced onion and garlic or use onion & garlic salt to taste
2 shakes of paprika for color
1/4 - 1/2 cup cheddar cheese finely grated

- Mix all ingredients together and refrigerate a few hours.  It is easier to form balls once the mixture is cool and firm.
- Using plastic wrap form 1 large ball or 2 small balls and roll in chopped pecans.

Pineapple Cheese Ball
2 jars pineapple cheese spread (kraft)
2 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese softened
1 can crushed pineapple - drained and firmly patted dry (you don't want a lot of moisture)

- Same as above!  Though this cheese ball is good in both almonds or pecans.
