Busy, Busy...

I am sure you can appreciate just how busy the season becomes this time of year!  Not only is it Christmas and thus extra decorating, entertaining and celebrating--but I also work in retail-aaaaggghhhh!

Here is another great appetizer recipe--for those days when you need something impressive, on a very short time schedule!

Pecan Cheese Ball
1/2 pkg cream cheese (brick, not container) at room temp.
1 cup shredded cheese (preferable old cheddar or another type of sharp cheese)
1/4 tsp cracked pepper
1 tsp Cajun seasoning
1 cup finely chopped pecans

Combine all ingredients except nuts and mix well.  Shape into a ball and roll in nuts.  Press nuts in lightly until completely coated. Serve with your favourite crackers.

Tip: this is a great one to make ahead, or to split into 2 small balls.  Make sure you take it out of the fridge and leave it to warm to up to room temp for serving!
