 Woven wheat crackers

Make It

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Special Extra
Use a nicely shaped 2-cup terrine or mold in place of the bowl. Be sure to line it with plastic wrap before filling with cream cheese mixture. After unmolding, smooth any irregularities with small knife or spatula.
Variation Note
Cream cheese mixture can be prepared using a food processor instead of the electric mixer.
Prepare as directed, using PHILADELPHIA 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese and/or GREY POUPON Country Dijon Mustard.
