Cluster Haven's Pepper Mill Cheese Ball

Andy Kruse
Ingredients
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 8-ounce package cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups grated Cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated onion
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely ground pepper (to get really coarse pepper, I put peppercorns in a dish towel and bang it with a mallet on my floor)
Instructions

Combine the butter and cream cheese. Add in the Cheddar and onion. Mix it really well.

Form it into a ball and roll it in the pepper. Refrigerate. Serve at room temperature on a Ritz.

  • The fragile science of ice cream

    Making ice cream and frozen yogurt requires skill, so much so that Penn State offers a course on the subject. Molly Birnbaum, executive editor of Cook's Science for America's Test Kitchen, attended, and shares what she learned with Sally Swift.
