Last weekend, I received a last-minute invitation to an Easter Potluck. I decided what I was going to make, put it in the oven and guess what — disaster!!! Yes I have them too! I either messed up the temp or the timing…… anyway, I needed a Plan B, stat! Luckily I always keep cream cheese, crackers and some interesting preserves in my kitchen. Ahhhh……. plan b
This is so easy it hardly qualifies as a recipe. Take cream cheese (I used 3/4 of a package) and spread it around a 1 cup ramekin. Spread a layer of Fig Preserves over the cream cheese. Top it with chopped walnuts or almonds. Place the ramekin in a napkin lined basket with some crackers and a spreader – Voila!
I found the Fig Preserves at a local farmers market. Be sure to keep a look out next time you visit a local farm or market and stock up for an emergency. For other Quick and Easy Appetizer Ideas click here.
