So next time you entertain your guests this winter holiday with this Pumpkin Cheese Ball made with pumpkin puree, cream cheese and maple syrup.
I want to share with you all that I haven’t eaten as many cheese balls during my childhood days. Mainly we would have a cold shrimp with cocktail sauce or sausage bread during any get together. Only when I was in my 10th standard, that I was introduced to the cheesy balls while attending parties at one of my friends’ family gatherings. To be frank till date I never even made one until very recently. But I have seen my friend’s mother cook them and I say it is really easy and quick to make. It’s the refrigeration time that takes the longest.
Here I share a recipe that consists of cream cheese, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, fresh thyme and pecans. It is awesome to relish and I am sure will be liked by you guys too. The pumpkin only gave it the orange color and you can’t taste much of the pumpkin flavor. I need to make a mention that you have to use either a stand or electric mixer when combining the ingredients.
So let’s take a look at the recipe
Prep Time: 10 mins
Total Time: 10 mins
Servings: 24 (2 tbsp. per serving)
- 12 oz. soft Cream Cheese
- 1/4 c. Pumpkin Puree
- 2 tsp. Maple Syrup
- 1 tsp. Fresh Thyme
- 1/2 c. Chopped Pecans
- Add one by one cream cheese, pumpkin puree, maple syrup and thyme to a stand or electric mixer until all ingredients are mixed and you get a smooth texture.
- Place the mixture on top of plastic wrap and cover all sides forming a ball. Refrigerate it for at least 3 hours and do remember to have it done one day ahead of time allowing the cheese to set.
- Add the pecans to a bowl and remove the plastic wrap from the cheese. Roll the ball mix in the nuts, coating from all sides.
- Serve with crackers or a sliced baguette.
