Lemon Cheesecake Cheese Ball

Lemon Cheesecake Cheese Ball
10 oz cream cheese
2.5 t sugar
4 t fresh lemon juice
3 graham crackers
Zest from a large lemon
Apple slices, graham crackers, etc.

Combine the cream cheese and sugar in a bowl. Mix well. Add the lemon zest and lemon juice. Continue to mix until the substance is blended. Once smooth, take the mixture and mold it into a ball. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for a minimum of 3 hours. Next, crush the 3 graham crackers and roll the ball in the crackers for an even coat. Once it is covered, place it back into the fridge until you are ready to serve. Serve with apples, graham crackers or anything to your liking.

I will bet you money that this will be a HUGE hit with anyone who tries it. At work we had a retirement party and I searched the Internet for something that would be different and inexpensive to make. I found this recipe and it was perfect! Incredibly simple to prepare, very cheap ingredients, and it was such a refreshing surprise from the typical cheese ball. Everyone enjoyed munching on it and one of the party goers decided to take it home. It is sweet, but not too sugary. The lemon is a great addition to this recipe, but it is in no way overpowering.
