*Johnna’s tip: The vacation is over. A very cold vacation but a vacation nonetheless. With the New Year we are glad to see new treats: Ritz Brown Sugar Cinnamon Crackers. We received these little bundles of joy about a week ago and have almost eaten the whole box. Now for those who read JKGF regularly, you know we are not sweet or snack people, but we might convert after trying these crackers. They are sweet but not too sweet and they taste exactly like their name suggests: cinnamon sugar. They make great bases for a breakfast appetizer such as the recipe posted above. Try just topping with plain cream cheese or eating them by their lonesome, Enjoy!
