   This recipe suggests particular fruits to adorn the simple
   cracker bases, but other fresh fruits, as well as steamed
   asparagus pieces, broccoli flowerets, and carrot slices
   could be substituted. Beat cream cheese at medium speed of
   an electric mixer until smooth; add orange rind, orange
   juice, and ground ginger, mixing well.  Spoon mixture into
   a decorating bag fitted with tip No. 18, and pipe mixture
   onto crackers; set aside.  Cut fruit into various shapes,
   and decorate crackers as desired with fruit and mint
   leaves.  Yield:  4 dozen.
