Crab and cream cheese appetizer

An appetizer that is lovely and everyone will like!!! It comes from Lisa Wachob, who is a friend and held my first valley baking/cooking class at her home last week. She gave me the recipe and I made it first thing in class so all the "girls could nibble on it. If you have a Cuisinart or other food processor, it works great in this recipe. I mean, who doesn't love crab??

12 oz. cream cheese, softened

small red onion finely chopped(in food processor, if possible)

1 small garlic clove(mince with onion)

2 Tbls. Worchestershire sauce

2 Tablespoons mayonnaise

1 Tbls. fresh lemon juice

1/4 teas. salt

1/2 cup chili sauce

Fresh snipped parsley, for garnish

Combine the first 7 ingredients and beat with hand mixer until smooth. Spread evenly on a 12 1/2 inch flat plate. Spread chili sauce over the first layer, leaving a 3/4 inch margin all around. Shred crab, and pile on top. Garnish all over with parsley. Serve with crackers. Yummy!!
