It’s time for those magical gatherings we look forward to all year. Kick off the season in style with this mouthwatering menu of holiday-inspired Cosmic Crisp® recipes.
A thick, juicy Cosmic Crisp® slice sandwiched between store-bought crust and slathered with blueberry jam is the secret to creating these simple anytime treats. Nestling in thin slices of sharp cheddar sends them over the top. Use large star-shape cookie cutters for the summer change-up. A smattering of flake salt or sparkling sugar on top give a winning finish!
Step aside plain fruit chips. Plant-based apple “crackers” are taking the snack world’s center stage! Cut Cosmic Crisp® apples ¼-inch thick straight down from the stem. Spritz with cooking spray, then set ‘em and forget ‘em a few hours or overnight in a low heat oven. Sprinkle simply with sea salt just before serving.
Why stop short with salami when charcuterie can mean a multitude of meats?! Cut Cosmic Crisp® into seeded wedges and enwrap in prosciutto, thinly sliced ham, or salami. Sticky sweet honey makes these easy snacks more satisfying. Stir in some hot sauce for a tickle on the tongue.
For a frilly change of pace from the charcuterie wrap-ups, cut Cosmic Crisp® apples into seeded wedges and wrap on end with wonton wrappers to form pretty ruffled edges. Brush on a smidge of buttery goodness—melted butter mixed with a bit of chili powder or minced garlic or both—and bake just until the wonton “skirts” turn a golden hue. Serve with honey enlivened with a whisper of hot sauce.
A simple, yet flavor-bursting blend of hot chili, dried citrus, raw sugar, cumin, and salt beckoning much-beloved Mexican Tajin fruit seasoning, but better. Sprinkle over wedges of Cosmic Crisp® Apple and serve! Lip-smacking good!
Part cheese ball, part dip, this apple-loaded play on pimento cheese blends equal parts finely chopped Cosmic Crisp® with grated, dry aged white cheddar. Whirled in a blender with sour cream, Worcestershire, yellow mustard, honey & healthy pinch of garlic powder.
A quick mix up of finely chopped Cosmic Crisp® apple, cream cheese, blue cheese, and honey turn simple pastry tarts into a party starter extraordinaire. They’re made in fast-baked “tassies” made from 1½-inch circular dairy case pie crust-outs. Top off with a hit of seasonal red and green—a cranberry and fresh herb sprigs.
Crispy, cheddar-y, and chock-full of Cosmic Crisp®, these simple slice ‘n bake, sweet and crunchy wafers make you wanna lose store-bought in a box. Flour, cheddar and good, sweet cream butter create the base, while Cosmic Crisp® and cayenne fire up the flavor. Knead, shape and chill overnight. Bake ‘til golden for perfect handheld bites.
