“This is my mother's recipe, simple to make, but folks always think I really went to some trouble. I usually make 3 or more of these just after Thanksgiving to have on hand to take to potlucks etc. They keep really well. Also, you can put this in a mold, like at Christmas - a tree mold etc, for a festive touch.”

Directions

  1. Let cream cheese soften at least an hour at room temperature.
  2. Add water chestnuts and garlic - I've never measured this, but my guess is about 2 heaping teaspoons.
  3. Mix well (ok - I admit it, I use my hands, it's just easier).
  4. Shape into a ball and place in airtight container.
  5. Chill at least one hour.
  6. Before serving coat outside with with parsley.
  7. Serve with bland crackers - pretty much anything works, but well -- everything tastes better on a Ritz.
