Sesame Cheese Ball Recipe

I came up with this cheese ball when I combined two favorite recipes. Unlike some cheese spreads that can be somewhat bland, this has a little zest. I make it for occasions throughout the year. —Brenda Baughman, Mansfield, Ohio

"I have been making this cheeseball for years. Sometimes I add a package of Knoor's vegetable soup mix. You may need to add some sour cream to make the consistancy right if you add the dry mix. I am making this recipe into individual cheeseballs about 1 inch in diameter for a Christmas party this year."
