This cheese ball will keep for several days in the refrigerator. It's delicious! I've found it's especially popular at a party or get-together.

  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, well drained

"We did not like this at all. I took it to a card party and no one ate it. It was like eating just a spoonful of onions and green peppers - couldn't even taste the pineapple. Very salty, also."

"I have been making this for years and it is very good!! The pecans and pineapple give the ball such an unique flavor. It does have a hard time holding a ball shape however. Not a reason not to make it."

"Mine didn't turn out very solid, but oh my gosh, was it good!! I just turned it into a dip and topped it with the finely chopped pecans. Definitely a keeper, though maybe next time, it will hold a ball shape for me!"

"This is my favorite and my families favorite cheese ball ever. I made this for our Christmas Eve get together and there wasn't even a crumb left. Usually when I make the other 2 that I have over the years, at least I have leftovers LOL. This is the best and easiest to make...can't believe I missed this recipe all these years. Jan V"
