Preparation / Directions:

Mix the ingredients and make the balls with a pair of butter paddles which have been soaking in ice water for several hours before you use them After the balls are made and garnished, give them an hour or two to harden in the refrigerator. Serve only a few at a time, on a bed of lettuce leaves and refill the plates often, not only from popular demand, but to keep the balls cold and firm as long as possible. |=| CHIVE BALLS: Cream all ingredients well and shape into balls. OLIVE CHEESE BALLS: Cream well and form into balls the size of a marble. Roll in coarsely chopped walnuts. CURRIED CHEESE BALLS: Cream all ingredients well and shape into balls.
