This is a cheese ball that has olives, butter and garlic in it, and it is rolled in walnuts - we enjoyed it every year at Christmas as children.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
- 1 (5 ounce) jar pimento-stuffed green olives, drained and minced
- 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
In a medium bowl, stir together the cream cheese and margarine until well blended. Mix in the green olives and garlic powder. Shape into a ball, and roll in chopped walnuts to coat. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving, but preferably overnight. Serve with an assortment of crackers.
