Yes you read that title right, toasted Ritz crackers with cream cheese and grape jelly. It’s really, really good. It’s a relic from my childhood. We had this wonderful neighbor/babysitter we called Grandma Rose and she really got me started on my lifelong love affair with Italian food. She also made this delicious snack for my sister and I all the time.
Tonight I made it for Future Foodie and she is now officially a fan.
It’s super easy. All you need are Ritz cracker, some plain cream cheese, and jelly of your choice (I prefer concord grape jelly).
Lay the crackers on a piece of foil, smear the cream cheese on each cracker, and add a dollop of jelly. It should look like this:
Now eat one or more if you’re so inclined. You will get a nice mouthful of buttery, slightly salty, a little tart, creamy, sweet goodness.
