Post by pstarkoski on Wed Jan 21, 2009 9:09 pm

I just made up these two dips for Thanksgiving appetizers....They are going to be really yummy....and so appropriate for the season!


[b][b]Cranberry Delight Spread
1 pkg (8-oz) cream cheese
2 tablespoons concentrated orange juice
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon sugar
1 zest of an orange
1/4 cup finely chopped pecans, optional
1/4 cup finely chopped dried cranberries

In a bowl, combine the cream cheese, juice, cinnamon & sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Fold in the orange zest, pecans & cranberries. Refrigerate. Garnish with a slice of cranberry or zest of orange. Makes 1.5 cups of spread. Great with crackers & celery
