Menu Monday: Easy FUN with Cream Cheese!
CREAM CHEESE is on sale!!!! CREAM CHEESE is on sale!!!!! $.89 at Save-A-Lot!!!!!
Frugal people find what’s on SALE, and that’s what they eat! I was excited to see name brand cream cheese on sale at Save-A-Lot this week, I have TWO favorite EASY cream cheese recipes!!
- 1 pkg cream cheese
- 1 container “Cool Whip”/Dream Whip
- 1 pie crust
- 1 can cherries
Mix the cream cheese and cool whip with a hand mixer. Put it in the pie crust. Top with the cherries. Chill.
Whew, I’m worn out…that was SOOOO much work! :) Hehe.
Here’s an idea of what it will look like…check out the CherryPieRecipes Blog HERE!
OREO BALLS! All the rage this year
- 1 pkg oreos
- 1pkg cream cheese
- chocolate/almond bark
Crush the oreos. Mix the oreos with cream cheese. Plop spoonfuls on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Chill for 30 min or so. Now dip them in the melted chocolate.
Yeah, it’s THAT easy. I used “Peppermint Oreos”, and they tasted like Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies! My next experiment will be Peanut Butter “Oreos” (actually, they are just an off brand sandwich cookie from Save-A-Lot)…..I’m pretty excited to see how they turn out!
(And by the way, if you have an ego problem, you probably shouldn’t make these. You’re gonna get a LOT of compliments) :)
Here an idea of what mine looked like….
