Cheese Ball Planet
2 8-ounce packages cream cheese, allow to soften
1 8-ounce package sharp cheddar cheese shredded
1 envelope onion soup mix-use less if you'd like
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Dash cayenne pepper
1/2 cup pecans or walnuts finely chopped
In a mixing bowl blend together cream cheese and shredded cheese.
Blend in onion soup mix, lemon juice and cayenne pepper. Lay a sheet
of plastic wrap or waxed paper on the counter. Sprinkle crushed nuts
over the plastic wrap. Form cream cheese into a ball. Place cheese
mixture on top of nuts. Roll to coat ball with nuts. Serve with
fresh sliced vegetables or crackers.
Ham or turkey slices cut out with star or moon shaped cookie
cutters. Also try cutting carrot slices or peppers out of mini
star cookie cutters.
Pinwheel Space Ships
Flatten a piece of bread or use a tortilla. Spread with your
favorite filling such as peanut butter and jelly or chicken salad.
Roll up and slice. Your sandwiches will look like mini space
Create a Rocket Ship Cake
To make a rocket ship or space shuttle, you will need a 13x9 baked
recipe that has cooled. Cut it down the middle to create two long
rectangles. On your board add foil to the bottom and place one long
rectangle towards the bottom of the board.
Cut your remaining rectangle in half. Then one of the remaining
halves into 4 triangles as shown in diagram.
Place the rectangle half above your longer rectangle for the rocket
body. Add a triangle for the pointed top. Add another triangle to
each side of the bottom of the rocket. Add a crumb coat and allow to
sit several hours.
Decorate as you'd like adding whatever features you'd like.
Decorate with piping stars and smoothed sides.
Gum drops and flags added for decorations. Space ships mini
desserts decorated by the kids.
