Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This was one of mom's older cheese ball recipes. She would make it when friends came over to play pinnacle. Sometimes she would add 1 cup of cream to the recipe. We think it was because they could use it as a dip and no one had to put down their cards to spread it on a cracker!
