Now I am the one making them with my girls, and they are still as tasty as ever.
Mom's Holiday Cheese Ball
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, grated
2 teaspoons onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 1/2 a lemon)
splash of Worcestershire sauce
1 cup walnuts, finely chopped
Combine all the ingredients except for the walnuts in a large mixing bowl. Use your hands to mash everything together until thoroughly combined (a great job for little helpers).
Form into a ball and roll in the chopped nuts. Refrigerate before serving, preferably overnight.
