      I made this using dried peaches for the apricots and omitted the butter as I felt it was unnecessary calories. This is a great spread that we used as a fruit dip (pears) and plan on using for onion bagels later on this week. You really couldn't taste the alcohol at all and that could be omitted too. The cheddar was a nice touch. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
