If you like cheesecake, you will love these wonderful little appetizers. They taste just like strawberry cheesecake. Better yet, they may be the easiest appetizer in the world – pile three ingredients on a cracker and voila – you have a delicious appetizer that looks wonderfully on any buffet table. You can make a whole tray of them in a matter of minutes, and your family and friends will be amazed!
This is one of those recipes that you will want to have in your collection. It’s so easy; it’s so good, and everyone loves it! You can serve it as an appetizer or you can put it on a dessert table – either way it will fit right in. Whether it is a holiday party or a summer party, this is a beautiful addition.
Since strawberries are available any time of year, it’s not necessary to serve them only in the summer. In fact, since strawberries have been defined as a “super food”, you will want to include them on your menu as much as possible. Filled with Vitamin C and antioxidants, strawberries are a perfect addition to any meal.
And don’t forget that cream cheese comes in a low-fat version. If you want to cut down a little bit on the calories, this is a good alternative.
Strawberry Appetizer Recipe
Ingredients for Strawberry Appetizer:
- 8-oz. package cream cheese
- Brown sugar
- Trisket crackers, original flavor
- Strawberries, washed, hulled and cut in half
Directions for making Strawberry Appetizers:
Cut the cream cheese into little squares. Roll each square of cream cheese (both sides) in the brown sugar, liberally coating it. Place the cream cheese square on top of a Trisket – top the cream cheese with a strawberry half; push down just a little bit (but not too much so you don't squash the strawberry!) Enjoy!!
