Cute idea. :) Sounds yummy, but if I made this recipe, I'd have to make subsitutions for the cream cheese ((soy cream cheese). I bet this would also make a great dip for grapham crackers... mix up the cream cheese with the fruit spread, and either dip or spread onto crackers. Thanks for the idea princess. :)
My husband thanks you. :-) I used low fat graham crackers (Honey Maid) and 2 TBS of fat free cream cheese SPREAD on each sheet. I then used sugar free strawberry GLAZE that I found at Wal-mart next to the Angel food (bar-shaped) cakes. It comes in a bag and has virtually NO calories to speak of in the TINY amt needed for this recipe. With the ingredients that I used, they work out to less than 80 calories for a full-sheet of graham cracker "cake"! Wonderful late night low-cal, guilt-free snack! Thanks so much! TIP: Can't make these ahead and keep them in the fridge, they get soft and soggy. Best to assemble and eat.
How could something so simple be so good? I used gingerbread graham crackers and fat free cream cheese. Most of them got topped with strawberry jelly, but two were topped with grape at my son's request. The kids helped me make them and really enjoyed eating them. My husband and I agreed that some polaner all fruit on top would be lovely!
Excellent treat. This also gave me an idea for another great adaptation -- my local grocery sells tubs of premade "cheesecake filling" in the dairy aisle; I put a spoonful of that on a graham cracker and call it good! Thank you!
Here's a great variation on this treat -- I buy the large sugar cookies from the grocery store's bakery, spread Philly Cream Cheese with Pineapple on them, and then cut fresh strawberries to go on top. Sooo good. I once made these, cut them in half and took them to a party and they were gobbled up in no time. Lots of taste with very little effort!
I think I've seen an idea like this somewhere else before but only it was a snack for toddlers and preschoolers. Which made me think why not see if my toddler likes it too! I used regular cream cheese and Blackbery jam. YUM! It is a family hit! Thank's for sharing.
This made a great snack for me when I was in the hospital. The cafeteria has those little pkts. of cream cheese for bagels, so I grabbed a couple and some strawberry jelly. When my nurse asked me what I wanted for a snack, I chose graham crackers and a cup of coffee. When I told her my plans for the crackers, she went and got her some too! We both enjoyed them...Thanks for a great snack idea!
A quick and easy little treat. Thanks princess buttercup. Bullwinkle.
Wow oh wow...I didn't even get a picture of these because they were gone so quickly!! What a delicious, simple recipe...and a perfect, quick, easy YUMMY snack. This has got to be one of the best things I've had recently...thanks so much for sharing, we be making these again and again!
