Serve this Holiday Fig Cheese Spread as a Cheese Ball!
And here’s how:
Same as a spread—mix together the cream cheese and fig preserves. NOTE: For a larger cheese ball you may want to double the recipe. For a doubled recipe: Chop, 1½ cups nuts (walnuts or pecans). Form cream cheese mixture into a ball. Roll ball in chopped nuts. Refrigerate until firm (about 2 hours). Place on a platter, surround with mini toast and crackers.
