    I wrote out this recipe for my files and I'd used this recipe-it was really good, too! What I'd even done to prepare a cheese ball,I'd added 4 oz. blue cheese, 1/4 to 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce, according to taste. I'd rolled the ball in chopped pecans or walnuts before chilling! I'd also used this recipe just for a spread & omitted the Worcestershire sauce & blue cheese when preparing this recipe as a spread! I DID use 2 tsp. garlic & herb seasoning & 2 tsp. freeze-dried chives instead of the minced parsley, chervil & tarragon. For me this worked well! Since I wrote out this recipe for my use when a cheese spread is needed, I rate this a keeper!Thank you, Laurel Leslie, for this recipe! DELowenstein
