Almond Pinecone Cheeseball Submitted by Cynthia Ewer on October 16, 2007 It's a pinecone? No, it's a savory cheese spread sparked with bacon, green onions and dill. So pretty that guests are afraid to muss it, you'll need to dig into this creamy, pinecone-shaped cheeseball first! Add a sprig of artificial evergreen for an easy show-off holiday appetizer. This Ewer favorite has been served in our family for over 30 years!
