Cranberry orange cheese ball
- 8 oz cream cheese, at room temperature
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tsp fresh orange zest
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup candied chopped pecans
- Graham crackers
With an electric mixer, beat together the cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth. Mix in the orange zest and dried cranberries until well blended. Line a bowl with plastic wrap. Press the mixture into the bowl. Using the plastic wrap, roll the mixture into a ball. Refrigerate the mixture for 2 hours and then roll into a ball again if it needs reshaping. Unwrap and roll in the candied pecans. Serve with graham crackers.
