Recipe by: Southern Living Preparation Time: 0:20 This recipe suggests particular fruits to adorn the simple cracker bases, but other fresh fruits, as well as steamed asparagus pieces, broccoli flowerets, and carrot slices could be substituted. Beat cream cheese at medium speed of an electric mixer until smooth; add orange rind, orange juice, and ground ginger, mixing well. Spoon mixture into a decorating bag fitted with tip No. 18, and pipe mixture onto crackers; set aside. Cut fruit into various shapes, and decorate crackers as desired with fruit and mint leaves.
