Almond Balls

Almond Balls
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.
