    Default Holiday snacking recipes anyone...

    Been thinking on what kinds of special treats I am going to make for holiday snacks this season (dips, spreads, chips, homemade crackers etc…)

    Anyone got any Alaskan recipes that they would like to share?

    Thanks,

    Grandma Lori

    Ok I'll start...

    Grandma's Easy Cheesy Crackers

    1/4 pound butter (1 stick real butter)
    1 teaspoon salt (I prefer sea salt)
    Approx. 2 cups flour (whole wheat or white)
    4 teaspoons Frontier organic white cheese powder (you can use finely grated cheese if you don't have the powder)
    3 teaspoons cold water
    a dash of red pepper (optional)
    1 Tablespoon seeds (optional) sesame, caraway, poppy or whatever your favorite
    1 teaspoon minced dry or fresh onion (optional)

    Mix butter and cheese powder (or real grated cheese). Cut in the all the rest of the dry ingredients. Slowly add cold water to make a stiff dough. Knead in more flour or add a little more water if necessary.

    Roll into a 2" round or square log and place wrap loosely in freezer paper and freeze for about an hour. Slice thin (about 1/8 inch or thinner) and place on dry baking sheet. Bake at 300 degrees until light brown- about 10 minutes. Remove to serving plate and enjoy by themselves, with dip or salsa or with a jar of smoked salmon.

    Kids really enjoy helping make and eat these crackers!

    Default Fantastic Fruit Dip

    Found this recipe on the internet. Really fast and good.

    1 small carton whipped fruit flavored cream cheese
    1 single serving carton yogurt (I prefer regular yoplait...but whatever your favorite, it will work well!)
    1 jar marshmellow cream

    Stir all together in bowl until well blended. Serve right away or later. Keeps well in the frig.

    Great on sliced fruit. Wonderful spooned over cake or ice cream.

    My favorite is strawberry yogurt and cream cheese. I have been meaning to try getting a coconut cream yogurt and a pineapple cream cheese and see how that tastes!

    This came from a friends grandma and we just love it.
    Puppy Chow



    3/4 cup peanut butter
    1 cup chocolate chips
    1/4 cup butter
    8 cups Crispix cereal
    2 cups powdered sugar




    Melt the peanut butter, chocolate chips, and butter together.
    Pour over the cereal in a large kettle or bowl and stir well.
    Pour the powdered sugar into a large brown paper bag and
    add the cereal. Fold the bag to seal and shake well to coat evenly.
