Triscuit Berry Cheesecakes – savory & sweet dessert bites!

Today I entered the Triscuit Summer Snackoff and a chance to meet Martha Stewart!  Why not…she is someone I would love to meet and I always have Triscuits in my pantry.

This recipe was inspired by my Star Spangled Tartlets – a bite-sized dessert that I made for the 4th of July.  Instead of using pie crust to make tartlets, the similar ingredients could be used as a spread or topping on the Triscuit.  These would make a great savory-sweet appetizer or dessert to make up in a pinch!  The sweet berry pie filling and cheesecake spread paired nicely with a savory Rosemary & Olive Oil Triscuit.  My husband even said it was like a party in his mouth with all of the different flavors.  It actually take a lot to impress him.

Ha!  So wish me luck!!

Triscuit Berry Cheesecakes

• 2 cups fresh mixed berries (strawberry, blueberry)
• 1/3 cup water
• 1/2 cup sugar
• 2 TB corn starch
• 2 TB butter
• 1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
• 2 tablespoons butter , softened
• 1 teaspoon vanilla
• 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
• Box of Rosemary & Olive Oil Triscuits
• sliced almonds to garnish
Place the first 5 ingredients in a heavy saucepan, bring to a boil, stirring constantly until thickened. Remove from heat and cool.

Using an electric mixer, on high, beat the cream cheese and butter until smooth and fluffy. Lower the speed and add vanilla, then gradually add the sugar.

To assemble: Place Rosemary & Olive Oil Triscuits neatly on a serving platter. Spread cream cheese mixture on each cracker and top with a dollop of berry filling. Place a few sliced almonds on top to garnish.
