Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Serve with additional crackers.
Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fat, making them a good substitute for foods with saturated fat. When purchasing avocados, choose avocados with firm skins that yield to slight pressure when ripe. Once ripe, store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
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.
