Then one day, someone brought a dessert cheese ball to a church potluck and my life was changed.
What it basically amounts to is cream cheese, sweetener and flavorings. The sweetener is usually powdered sugar, to help make the cheese ball firm, but I’ve swapped for raw turbinado so that I feel better about eating a lot of it . As a result, the texture is much softer, and, served at room temperature, this could be used as a dip.Print
