This is really good. I served it on Father's day as an apppetizer and I had to print out the recipe for everyone! Instead of making it into a ball form, I used a small bundt pan to shape it. I spooned the strawberry preserves into the hole in the center. Made for a very pretty presentation. Give it a try!
