Granny’s Cheese Ball

From Joan's Granny Fitz (Margaret McGrath)

Yes, this really was served, and looked forward to, at every family function. It was a special treat for bridge club.

I have not eaten Ritz Crackers since I was a child. I really didn’t like them much even then. I always preferred Saltines, thinking them the much more gourmet fare.

I wanted to stay true to the recipe. When I went grocery shopping, I wasn’t sure if I could find the exact ingredients, thinking maybe it was a regional (Midwest) thing. I was surprised to find everything I needed at the local ShopRite in Hamden, CT.
