Triscuit Cheesecake? Yes, I Went There. #TeamTriscuit

So I was issued a challenge by Crowdtap and Triscuit to come up with a new recipe featuring those fabulous crackers in a new way. I love a food challenge more than anything, so I pondered.

I've had a lot of cool Triscuit snacks that were savory, but I MUST BE DIFFERENT. So I started thinking dessert. And this is the result:

They're sweet and creamy, with a cinnamony flavor, but you still get the great crunchy texture and just a touch of salt from the Triscuit. My family LOVED them, even the little ones. And they're actually pretty easy to make.

8 oz cream cheese, softened 
1/4 cup plus 1 tsp sugar 
2 Tbs milk 
2 tsp vanilla extract 
1/4 cup butter 
Cinnamon and sugar blend 
Original Triscuit crackers

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
1. Beat together cream cheese, sugar, milk and vanilla extract until smooth. 
2. Melt butter. 
3. Place Triscuits on ungreased cookie sheet. Brush with melted butter. 
4. Coat buttered Triscuits with cinnamon and sugar. 
5. Bake for about 5 minutes. Do not leave in too long. Remove and allow to cool. 
6. Fill a pastry bag with the cream cheese mixture. If you don't have one, a plastic bag with the corner snipped works, or you can spoon it on. Pipe onto the crackers, cinnamon side up. 
7. Top with a blueberry. 

Any spread can be substituted for butter, and any fruit for the blueberry. Enjoy a fun, sweet snack with the goodness of Triscuits!

I created this recipe for a Crowdtap challenge. I did not receive compensation or products.
