Crackers, Cream Cheese, and Pepper Jelly
35 mins (prep 5, cooking 30)
6 ingredients
4-6 servings
Another childhood favorite of mine for a snack or appetizer. I remember my mom telling my grandma that we should introduce her to "crackers, cream cheese, and pepper jelly" and grandma said, "who are they, your cats?" Lol. This is always a hit. Nowadays with my IBS I'd have to substitute regular or light or fat-free cream cheese with a non-dairy version, such as Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese. You can purchase the tub and spread the cream cheese from that, or you can buy the brick-style cream cheese (although I don't think Tofutti makes a brick-style) and spread the pepper jelly on top, refrigerate, and then spread on the crackers. I always did it from the tub. Serving size is an estimate, depends on how much of each ingredient you want to use. Cook time is chill time if you use the brick-style. You should be able to find the pepper jelly in the regular jam/jelly section of your supermarket.
