  • 2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 (8-oz.) package reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup solid pack pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup pineapple preserves
  • 1/4 tsp. ground allspice
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 2 triangles of crusty dark bread for eyes
  • 1 triangle of red bell pepper for nose
  • 2 ear shapes of red bell pepper for ears
  • sliced black olives, halved for mouth
  • pretzel rod or other stem-shaped food for stem
  • parsley sprigs for garnish
  • assorted crackers


Beat cheeses, pumpkin, preserves, and spices in medium bowl. Or combine in food processor until smooth. Cover; refrigerate 2 to 3 hours or until cheese is firm enough to shape. (Can be made a day in advance to this point.)

Shape mixture into round pumpkin; place on serving plate. Using knife, score vertical lines down pumpkin from center, widening to 1 1/2 to 2 inches at the bottom of cheese ball. Decorate with materials as suggested. Place stem in top. Tuck parsley around bottom of ball. Cover loosely; refrigerate until serving time. Serve with crackers.

  • 16 oz of softened cream cheese
  • 1/2 lb. of grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup of chopped green onions
  • 6 slices of bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 3 Tbsp. of pimento minced
  • 3 Tbsp. fresh minced parsley
  • 1 stalk of celery cut in half


Mix all ingredients together and form a ball. Place on serving dish. Use fingers or a knife to score down the sides like a pumpkin. Place in refrigerator overnight so that all the flavors can come together. Just before serving stick celery in the top of your pumpkin to form the vine. Serve with crackers or veggies. Enjoy!
