Pinecone Cheezeball


This idea has been around for years, but now it can be enjoyed in the raw!

Shape your favorite raw cheeze into a teardrop shape and cover it with almonds, starting at the tip and working up. Overlap the nuts slightly as shown. Almonds may be soaked and dehydrated if desired. Garnish with a few sprigs of rosemary and a couple of cranberries and you have another quick and easy snack for the holidays! You can serve it with your favorite crackers, or a bowl of almonds for dipping.

The cheeze I used is a mix of cashews and pine nuts. I added a little fresh rosemary, chives, parsley, nutritional yeast, garlic, and salt. I chilled the cheeze overnight before decorating.

Please check back to my Happy Raw Holidays! post for more recipes and ideas, as I will be adding more weekly:)

How cool is this!
I agree with everyone else, you need to publish a book. You are just as talented if not more than some of the other raw chefs out there.
