Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
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.
Tip 2
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.
Tip 3
Substitute
Substitute original RITZ Crackers for the Snowflake Crackers.
