Recipe Tips

Food FactsChoose avocados with firm skin that yields to slight pressure when ripe. Once ripe, store in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days. Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fat, making them a good substitute for foods with saturated fat.

NoteIf cream cheese gets too soft when shaping it into the tree shape, place it, with plastic wrap, in refrigerator for 5 to 10 min. or until desired consistency.

SubstituteSubstitute original RITZ Crackers for the Snowflake Crackers.
