Another recipe for ya today. This Pineapple Cream Cheese Ball is probably one of my most favorite appetizer/finger foods to eat. Every time I take it to a function it gets great reviews and it gets eaten up. If not, I know my family will eat the leftovers because they love it , too.
This is another one of my church Christmas party foods. That's why it has the cute, chubby santa clause spreader stuck in it. It's so cute! And yes, I did serve this with crackers, but when I took the pic the crackers hadn't made it on the platter, yet. It goes well with Ritz or a wheat cracker. Enjoy!
