Berry Cream Cheese

Being lactose intolerant hasn’t been too hard for me. Luckily, I can handle goat and sheep milk products. One thing I really really miss is a warm bagel with strawberry cream cheese. Honestly, cream cheese is my nemesis. It’s the one dairy product I cannot handle. Another lucky fact is that I really enjoy the flavor of the Tofutti cream cheese. Hubby enjoys it too! I honestly don’t believe why I didn’t think to make this Berry Cream Cheese before. It’s so freaking tasty!

You could use some store bought all-fruit jam if you don’t want to make your own. But if you have a few minutes, it’s really worth the effort. It’s really so simple. Mix jam with cream cheese, and VOILA! Berry cream cheese ready to be spread on your favorite bagel or toast. And obviously, to make things better, it’s PINK! Such a pretty color to help raise breast cancer awareness!

    I made this tonight for a birthday and it was truly *amazing*! We all loved it and all the kids came back wanting seconds. I followed the recipe exactly and it came out incredibly moist and gooey, deliciously sweet, and spiced. I used half Granny Smith apples and half Gala. I also only had a 9″ pan and by the time I filled it up I still had enough batter (and some extra apple slices left) to fill another 9″ pan. I didn’t have any extra caramel topping, but decided to just bake the batter with the few left over apple slices. Next time I will double the amount of the caramel topping and cut up two more apples and make two full pans worth. It takes a little bit of time to make, but is not a difficult recipe to follow and is oh-so worth it! Thanks for sharing this!

    I have been reviewin online more than 4 hours today for windows 7
    starter snpc oa toshiba & Pimento Cheese Burger , yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners
    and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
