CUT block of cream cheese diagonally in half. Place triangles together on 12x10-inch piece of plastic wrap to resemble a tree. Cover with second 12x10-inch piece of plastic wrap. Press to flatten cream cheese tree into 7-inch-tall tree with 6-inch-wide base. Peel off top sheet of plastic wrap. Invert cream cheese tree onto serving plate; remove remaining plastic wrap.

MASH avocado in medium bowl. Add mayo and lime juice; mix well. Spread over cream cheese.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Food Facts
Choose 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.
Note
If 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.
Substitute
Substitute original RITZ Crackers for the Snowflake Crackers.
