Cheese and almond hedgehogs



Add quills

Place a cheese wedge on a round cracker. Starting on the bottom and working your way to the top, insert almond slices into the cheese wedge to create the hedgehog quills, covering 3/4 of the cheese with almonds. (If the cheese wedge starts to crack or split, pipe some cream cheese onto the wedge to help secure the almond slices in place.)
