Cream Cheese Bites

I changed Mad Mad Me's Recipe a little...

Cream Cheese Bites
16 ounces cream cheese
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 tsp. vanilla or almond extract
2 tsp. orange or lemon zest
For coating:
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 tbsp. cinnamon sugar (I keep a mix in a jar for toast, so I just used a tbsp. of this)

Mix together all ingredients except the graham crackers and cinnamon sugar for coating; chill for about 15 minutes.  While cream cheese mixture is chilling, mix cinnamon sugar into graham cracker crumbs in a bowl. Make bite sized portions of the cream cheese mixture, roll them in the graham cracker, cinnamon sugar mixture and shape them into whatever shapes you want. I made flat rounds so they would stack, but you could leave them in balls. Chill them for another 10-15 minutes before serving since the rolling and molding soften up the cream cheese a bit. Enjoy!
