Servings: 8


  • 2 (8 oz.) Wellsley Farms Cream Cheese packages almost room temp
  • 1 cup Wellsley Farms Shredded Cheddar Cheese rough chopped into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup Wellsley Farms Shredded Mozzarella cheese rough chopped into small pieces
  • 1/3 cup Wellsley Farms Sour Cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 4 scallions finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup Wellsley Farms Chopped Pecans for rolling (+ more if needed)
  • Serve with Wellsley Farms Entertainment Crackers and Wellsley Farms Green Bell Peppers (for a veggie option)


  • Using a large mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients from the Wellsley Farms Cream Cheese to the Worcestershire sauce. Use a potato masher to gently mash the ingredients together and combine easier. Once everything is well combined, form and shape into a ball. You can make one large and one small or two medium sized cheese balls.
  • Scatter the Wellsley Farms Chopped Pecans on a large plate or flat surface and roll your cheese balls until the entire exterior is covered. You can serve immediately, or, if making ahead: wrap well with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator in an airtight container up to three days in advance. Enjoy and serve with Wellsley Farms Entertainment Crackers.
