Cream Cheese Appetizers with Tomato & spring onion

These cream cheese appetizers with Tomato and spring onion were another big hit at my Christmas party this year. What I liked best easy appetizers like these, is that the mixture kept its consistency well and did not make the crackers soggy, so they could be made a little ahead of time.  The taste is delicious.
