This is really similar to the spread at panera/St. Louis Bread Company. I eat this on bagels, toast, english muffins, waffles. I store it in a plastic rubbermaid type container. I don't measure per se, just kind of judge by taste.
- 8 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
- 2 -3 tablespoons honey
- 2 -3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 -2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 -2 dash cinnamon
- 1 ounce crushed walnuts
- Put all ingredients in a bowl.
- Mix with a blender.
- Eat until gone.
Absolutely delicious! It tasted better than the $5 tub of spread from our local bagel shop. I used 2 T honey, 2 T brown sugar, 1 t vanilla, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, and the recommended 1 oz walnuts. I will definitely do this again!
Our local bagel shop serves this same spread but I don't remember there being any vanilla, but I liked that addition. The only thing I did differently was to finely grind the walnuts for a smoother consistency so it was as close to the spread that is offered at the bagel shop here in town. Also, good as a sandwich spread or a dip for cut up vegetables. Thanks for posting!
This is a recipe I will be using over and over again! I cannot believe how great it tasted. I used local sourwood honey I purchased from our Farmer's Market. FANTASTIC!
