  • Chill overnight in a covered bowl to allow flavors to blend.
  • On a serving platter, divide cheese mixture into 2 (aff) portions and shape each into a pine cone. This works best by simply using your hands to roll each portion into a ball, then gently squeezing on end downwards to create somewhat of a narrow point.
  • Press the almonds at a slight angle into the cheese, starting at the narrow end of the pine cone shape. Continue to overlap rows until all of the cheese is covered.

  • Garnish with rosemary sprigs, and serve at room temperature with crackers or toasted crostini.


This cheese ball has a slight spiciness to it from the pepper jack cheese and jalapeño. To create a milder flavor, simply replace the pepper jack cheese with a milder cheese and substitute the jalapeño with green onions.
