2 eggs
1⁄2 cup water
24 TRISCUIT® Roasted Garlic Crackers
2 ounces (1⁄4 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA® Neufchâtel Cheese, softened
1⁄4 tsp. lemon zest
2 tsp. lemon juice
2 tsp. fat-free milk
2 tsp. chopped fresh parsley
24 uncooked medium shrimp (about 1⁄2-lb.), peeled, deveined
2 cloves garlic, minced

HEAT oven to 350°F.
BEATeggs and water in pie plate with whisk until blended. Add 12 crackers; let stand 8 min., turning over after 4 min. Press 1 soaked cracker onto bottom and up side of each of 12 mini muffin pan cups sprayed with cooking spray. Repeat with remaining 12 crackers in additional muffin cups.
BAKE 8 to 10 min. or until lightly browned. Use metal spatula to carefully loosen crusts from muffin pan; transfer to lightly greased baking sheet. Bake an additional 20 to 25 min. or until crisp. Remove to wire racks; cool.
MEANWHILE, mix Neufchâtel cheese, lemon zest, lemon juice, milk and parsley; set aside. Cook and stir shrimp and garlic in nonstick skillet sprayed with cooking spray on medium-high heat 3 to 4 min. or until shrimp turn pink. Place 1 shrimp in each cracker cup; top with Neufchâtel cheese mixture.
Makes 2 doz. or 24 servings, 1 shrimp cup each.

Make Ahead: Cooled baked cracker cups can be stored in airtight container at room temperature up to 8 hours. Cooked shrimp and Neufchâtel cheese mixture can be stored in separate containers in refrigerator until ready to use. When ready to serve, place 1 shrimp in each cup; place on baking sheet. Bake at 350°F for 7 to 8 min. or until shrimp are heated through before topping with Neufchâtel mixture.

Shortcut: In a hurry? Try this quick-and-easy variation instead. Omit eggs and water. Prepare Neufchâtel cheese mixture and cook shrimp as directed. Spread Neufchâtel cheese mixture onto crackers, then top with shrimp and sprinkle with parsley.
