It’s the oldest trick in the Charleston book! Dollops of red or green pepper jelly atop a block of softened cream cheese and the crowd goes wild! You can always keep this on hand so when unexpected guests drop in —you’ll have a showstopper without trying. Of course, serve it on your finest china with a beautiful serving knife and the plot thickens. Though we love a wispy water cracker, this requires something heartier that won’t go crumbling. Enjoy, y’all!
