Cherry Cream Cheese


Cherry Cream Cheese

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Level: Easy

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Serves: 5

Make your own flavored cream cheese by stirring in fresh, in-season cherries. We like the flavor of black cherries, but any kind will work. Spread this on your morning bagel or sandwich it between graham crackers for a cherry cheesecake-inspired snack.

Ingredients:

  • 4 ounces (1/2 cup) reduced-fat cream cheese, (Neufch√Ętel)
  • 1/4 cup chopped pitted fresh cherries, or thawed and drained frozen cherries
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons confectioners’ sugar
  • Pinch of ground allspice

Preparation:

  1. Combine cream cheese, cherries, sugar and allspice in a small bowl.
