Nutrition Facts: 240 calories 9 grams fat
40 butter flavored crackers (such as Ritz)
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese or 1 (8 ounce) package neufchatel cheese, at room temperature
1 (16 ounce) jarmarinated sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil (the kind I tried had Italian seasonings in the oil already)
1 tablespoon italian seasoning (optional)
1/2 cup fresh basil leaf, shredded, garnish (optional)
If your sundried tomatoes do not already have Italian seasoned herbs in their oil, you will need to first stir in 1 Tbsp of Italian seasoning blend to your tomatoes, then cover and chill overnight.
Drain off the oil from your tomatoes.
Spread a generous spoonful of cream cheese onto each cracker and top with a strip of marinated sundried tomato.
Place onto a platter and garnish with strips of fresh basil leaves, if desired.

I served it with whipped cream and strawberries. This recipe is a definite keeper and I will be making it for years to come. Thank you for sharing such a great recipe." - dianney

"I followed the recipe exactly-once for Christmas Day, the next time for New year's Eve. Both times it was a big hit, with people asking how I made it. I added some frozen fruit icecubes & I made sure the Golden Circle fruit juice packs & soft drink bottles were in the freezer for a while before I made them, so that they were-not frozen of course-but icy cold. There were a few slivers of ice in the fruit juice actually. Very easy to make, liked by just about everyone. Good recipe to have." - sherri3802
