Sweet Cherry Cheese Ball

Ooh oooh! This recipe is awesome! I think it's from The Sister's Cafe. We had it as an appetizer at Thanksgiving and it was actually my daughter's favorite Thanksgiving dish. It tastes kinda like cheesecake on a cracker. Mmmmm.

Sweet Cherry Cheese Ball

8 oz package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup sweetened shredded coconut
8 maraschino cherries, chopped into small pieces
3/4 cup chopped pecans

Place block of cream cheese on a microwave safe plate and microwave for 30 seconds. In a bowl combine cream cheese and powdered sugar. Blend well. Stir in chopped cherries and coconut. Refrigerate for about 15 minutes. Shape cream cheese mixture into a ball and roll in chopped pecans. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for an hour. Serve with crackers.
