 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      cups          shredded Cheddar cheese -- (1/2-pound)
      1/2  cup           crumbled blue cheese -- (2-ounces)
    1      package       cream cheese -- (3-ounce)
    2      tablespoons   milk
    1      teaspoon      Worcestershire sauce
    1      teaspoon      lemon juice
    1      tablespoon    chopped pimiento
    1      tablespoon    chopped chives
      1/2  cup           ground or finely chopped nuts
    2      packages      refrigerated -- (11-ounce)
                         cracked wheat or cornbread twists
 
 Let cheese stand at room temperature before mixing.  Beat or process cheese,
 milk, Worcestershire sauce, and lemon juice until well-blended.  Stir in
 pimiento and chives.  Form into 40 small balls.  Roll in nuts, cover, and
 chill.  Open refrigerated twists and unroll.  Cut dough in half horizontally
 to make 4 sections, then cut each section into 5 pieces, each made up of 4
 short strips.  On a lightly floured surface, use fingers to press and pull
 strip until it is about 2 inches wide and 5 inches long.  Cut in half.  Place
 cheese in center of half, cover with other half, then pull and pinch edges to
 seal.  You will make 20 squares from each package.  Cover and chill until
 ready to fry.  Deep fry 2 wrapped cheese balls at a time for 2 to 3 minutes,
 turning to brown all sides.  Makes 40.
