Time needed: 10 minutes (or time to skin the almonds)
This is a nice and easily made cheese ball. One addition I would make to the instructions is to grind the toasted sesame seeds so they don’t catch in your teeth and are easier to digest.
1½ cups almonds
1½ cups cream cheese
A little crushed garlic (optional)
Toasted sesame seeds
Skin the almonds by dipping them into hot water to loosen the skins.
Chop the almonds and mix them into the cream cheese.
Add the garlic (optional)
Shape the mixture into small balls and roll in the toasted sesame seeds.
Variation: use finely grated cheddar cheese in place of the cream cheese. Add a little cream to bind the mixture.
