Turkey Bacon

What you need to do:

Thaw out your phyllo dough if you got it frozen for 45 min. 
When thawed, Spread out. 

 Spread out your cream cheese, or garlic spreadable cheese.

 Place your Turkey Bacon on top and evenly spread out!

 Spread out your cheese all over!!

 Place your spinach on top!!

I made slits across the top and added some garlic butter.

Bake at 400 for 20-35 minutes!

Lemon Truffles

So I decided to make a different kind of truffle, and who doesn't like Lemon??

What you need:
1 pkg (8 oz) Philly Cream Cheese
1 (16 oz) Box of Lemon Cookies
6 Semisweet Baking White Chocolate
1/3 cup Shortening
What you need to do:
With an electric mixer, beat your cream cheese to make fluffy. 
Add in your either already crushed cookies or add them in whole if your mixer can handle breaking them.
When mixed thoroughly, with a cookie scooper, make your balls.
I personally, like to scoop them to get the right size, then roll them with my hands to smoothen them out.
Melt your white chocolate and mix in your shortening until blended well together. 
Dip your truffles and set to dry. 
With the leftover white chocolate, I put in a squeezy bottle and added a bit of yellow dye and some powdered juice mix with lemon flavoring, mixed it together and drizzled on top of the truffles.

Set in fridge to dry.
