Crab Dip and Crackers

I remember this appetizer from my childhood. My mom would make it for parties, it was requested quite a bit by friends and family. We would always have it around the holidays for some kind of gathering. As a child, I always thought it was so elegant and special. Now as an adult, I appreciate how easy it is to make. I found everything I needed at my local Market District store.
