Ingredients:
Cheesy balls
4 oz flake imitation crab meat (pulled into small pieces)
4 oz cream cheese (softened)
2 oz goat cheese
2/3 cup pine nuts
3 tbsp green onions (chopped)
1/2 tsp fresh baby dill (diced)
1/4 tsp fresh taragon (diced)
1/8 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp paparika
pinch of essence
Kosher salt (to taste)
Fresh crack pepper (to taste)

Topping
2 pinches smoked paparika (over the top)
1 lemons juice freshly squeezed over the top

In a medium mixing bowl mix together all cheesy ball ingredients except pine nuts until mixed well.  Roll into 12-14 balls and sit on piece of wax paper.  Roll each ball in pine nuts until mostly covered and then place on a wax paper covered backing sheet.  Sprinkle smoked paprika over the tops of the cheesy balls, cover with a sheet of wax paper and refrigerate for 20-25 minutes or until ready to eat.  Just before serving squeeze fresh lemon juice over the cheesy balls and enjoy!
