SHERRIED TWO-CHEESE BALL
one large cheese ball or 2 small to medium cheese balls
These cheese balls also make great gifts to give to friends during the holiday season.
In a medium bowl, combine cheeses; add sherry and mayonnaise. With an electric mixer, beat cheese mixture at medium speed until mixture is smooth and well mixed. Add remaining ingredients, except paprika, parsley sprigs or other herbs, and crackers.
Shape mixture into one large ball or two equal-size balls. Cover with plastic wrap and chill until ball(s) is/are almost firm. Wrap ball(s) in plastic wrap, sealing tightly, and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
Allow cheese ball(s) to come to room temperature before serving. Sprinkle cheese ball with paprika as desired. Garnish cheese ball or balls with sprigs of parsley or other herbs. Accompany with crisp assorted crackers as spreaders.
