Bready or Not Original: Fruity Wensleydale Cream Cheese Balls
A delicious, cheesy treat that is low-carb, gluten-free, and keto-friendly! Form tablespoon-sized balls using equal portions of Wensleydale cheese with fruit (though fruity Stilton or cheddar may also work) and cream cheese; add extra dried fruit that matches the cheese; roll them in ground pecans (or maybe even walnuts), and ta-da! Makes about 15 tablespoon-sized balls. Recipe is easily doubled if you need to feed a crowd!

2Tablespoonsdried fruit that matches cheese
Use a fork to chop cheese into chunks of various sizes. Add dollops of cream cheese and extra dried fruit and stir together, taking care distribute the Wensleydale without breaking it apart too much.
Place ground pecan pieces in a small bowl. Use a tablespoon and hands to form small balls. Roll in pecan bits to coat. Store in a sealed dish in fridge. Flavor improves after a day as the pecan flavor infuses the cheese balls more. Keeps for at least four days.
