ABC Cheese Dip Recipe

Both the young and young-at-heart will dig right into this delightfully seasoned dip. "It isn't too garlicky, so kids will like it," adds crafter and cook Kimberly Miller from Norfolk, Virginia. (For a fun after-school-treat, our home economists suggest cutting vegetables with alphabet- and numeral-shaped cookie cutters, like they did here, to serve as dippers.)
