• Cinnamon Apple Cherry Cheese Ball

    Combine the tantalizing flavors of walnuts, cherries, apple pie spice and a touch of brown sugar to create a delightfully smooth, creamy dip perfect for fruits (Cantaloupe Chunks, Grapes, Apple Slices), Carrot Sticks, or butter crackers.
    Cinnamon Walnut Cheeseball with fresh fruit slices

    1 (8oz) pkg Cream Cheese
    3 T. Walnuts, Chopped
    3 T. Dried Cherries, Chopped
    1/4 c. Water
    3/4 tsp cinnamon
    Pinch of Apple Pie Spice
    3 T. Dried Apple, chopped
    3 T. Brown Sugar

    Place cream cheese in a bowl and whip gently until smooth, add remaining ingredients,
    roll into a ball (using a plastic spatula works great!), roll in powdered cinnamon sugar (for presentation, if desired)!

    Serve with slices of apples, grapes, cantaloupe chunks. If you prefer more of a "Dip" consistency and less of a cheese ball consistency, add 1/2 c. sour cream OR 1/2 c. vanilla yogurt to the cream cheese, blending until smooth BEFORE adding remaining ingredients.

    Recipe may be doubled.

    This recipe is one of our favorites for snacking & travels well in a small cooler.

      My dip came out as a dip without adding sour cream or yogurt. It would not form into a ball. Did I do something wrong?

      Perhaps the brand of cream cheese? It sounds as though the cream cheese was a bit too soft or maybe too much brown sugar was added? It could be any number of things- the cherries weren't drained enough, etc. Don't worry about it, it should still taste delicious, regardless.
