Hump Day Snack: Cheesy Thanksgiving App

By: Amanda Marsteller
Related To:

In our humble opinion, Thanksgiving is superior to any other day of the year. In an effort to make this year's feast the best of all time (sorry, Pilgrims and Wampanoag tribe), we're bringing you the recipes, how-tos and decorating ideas to help you become a Turkey Day pro.

Did somebody call for an incredibly adorable pumpkin pie-impersonating appetizer? Lucky for them, these cheesy cracker bites exist solely to delight Thanksgiving dinner guests. They're especially useful for giving the kids something to do while you're busy baking the real pumpkin pie, as they're easily assembled with a few crackers, some thick slabs of sharp cheddar and a whimsical "whipped cream" dollop of cream cheese on top. Only slightly more time-consuming than spreading club crackers across a plate, they'll elicit three times the oohs and ahhs from your Thanksgiving company. Get the simple instructions for crafting these dessert-inspired snacks and then feast on a few of Cooking Channel's cheesiest appetizers for turkey day:
