Recipe Greeting Cards

It’s fun to photograph food and then share with the recipe on a greeting card. I have given you three possibilities.

Recipe Greeting card

Print your photo on front of card and the recipe inside. Note the card is folded so the recipe is on the top half when opened. Or you can print it on the back if you want.

Gift Recipe Share

You may give bread, cookies or other baked goods at the holidays. Include a card with the photo and recipe. Print on a single 5×7 sheet front and back. (not a foldable card).

Greeting card with separate photo

If you don’t print your own cards, you can use a separate print and tack it onto the card surface. I added a title underneath the photo, but you can hand write it or leave text-free. The recipe can be printed on the inside on your regular desktop printer.

This is so easy and absolutely delicious!

Mix 16 oz cream cheese and 1 cup white sugar with 1 tsp vanilla.

Open a can of crescent roll dough and spread into greased 13×9 pan.  Spread the cream cheese mixture on top. Open the other can and lay the dough on top gently. Then brush 1/2 cup melted margarine over the whole top layer. Mix 1/4 cup white sugar with 1 tsp cinnamon and sprinkle over the butter. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

When it cooled slightly, I added the apples from a can of apple pie filling… went the easy route!
