It’s more than a Gift Card. Savour the Holidays. The holiday season is synonymous with delicious feasts and mouthwatering treats. Savour the Season with Thrifty Food’s Aged Gouda Cheese Ball Recipe that is sure to delight your taste buds and impress your guests.

METHOD Beat the cream cheese until light. Mix in the remaining ingredients, except nuts. Spread the nuts on a plate. With cold water dampened hands, form the cheese mixture into the shape of an oblong ball, and then set on the nuts. Coat the cheese log in the nuts, pressing them on to help them adhere. Set the cheese log on a serving plate. Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours to firm up. (The log can be prepared up to a day in advance.) To serve, unwrap and surround the cheese ball with crackers or thin slices of baguette. Note: Unsalted mixed nuts are available in the bulk foods department. You can crush them by placing them in a thick plastic bag and hitting them with a kitchen hammer. SERVING SUGGESTIONS Serve the cheese ball with a selection of fine crackers. The cheese log could also be spread on pieces of celery or leaves of Belgian endive.
