What you’ll need:

  • 8 ounces, weight Cream Cheese
  • ¼ cups Sour Cream
  • 1 cup Finely Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • ¼ cups Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • ½ teaspoons Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 pinch Cayenne Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice
  • ¼ teaspoons Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • ½ cups Toasted Pecans, Chopped Coarse (optional)
  • 1 actual pumkin stem

Preparation Instructions

1) Place all ingredients except pecans in a large bowl. Beat with a hand mixer on medium-low speed until well combined.

2) Scrape the mixture onto a piece of plastic wrap. Cover with the plastic wrap and shape into pumpkin shape. Use finger or spatula to put pumpkin like vertical grooves. Put the cheese ball on a plate and place in the refrigerator to harden, about 30 minutes – 1 hour.

3) Roll the cheese ball in the chopped pecans and place on a serving plate. Press actual pumpkin stem into top. Serve with crackers.

Note: this cheese is best if allowed to sit for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator to allow the flavors to blend. The flavors are best if it is allowed to sit at room temperature for 15-20 minutes before serving.
