Author Notes: I needed to take an appetizer to a friend's housewarming party, and I came up with this cheese ball recipe using things I already had in the kitchen. Sweet pears and honey mix perfectly with three cheeses, almonds, rosemary, and fresh ground pepper.Loves Food Loves to Eat

Makes 1 cheeseball

  • 10 ounces goat cheese (chevre)- room temperature
  • 6 ounces cream cheese- room temperature
  • 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons coarsly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 ripe pear- diced
  • 3/4 cup thin sliced almonds
  1. Mix cheeses, honey, pepper, rosemary, pear, and about 1 tablespoon almonds together with electric hand or stand mixer.
  2. Scrape mixture off sides and bottom of bowl and shape into a ball. Will be soft.
  3. Roll cheeseball in remaining almonds.

Soooooo good. I made mine into two smaller balls. Everyone at my last party loved it.

Thanks! Just saw this... 7 months later =). Great idea making 2 smaller cheese balls--more nutty surface area!
