This cream cheese spread is so amazing. YUM, we all enjoyed the combination of hearty roasted garlic with sweet plump cranberries. Your soaking tip was really great and this was gone very fast. :) I also used it thinned out as a pasta sauce and it was equally great. My only change was not to use the salt and pepper.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper with us, Picholine.

I brought this to a potluck and everyone just loved it! I was a bit wary of the amount of garlic, but since it's roasted it is not overpowering - don't skimp! I gave the recipe to a woman who made it for her family for Christmas and she said that they loved it too. Thank you!
I made this as one of our appetizers for the Thanksgiving meal we hosted. It was wonderful! Rather than using water or rum, I macerated the dried cranberries in amaretto for about an hour and a half. I just seasoned with sea salt and freshly-ground black pepper--no sugar or sweetener as mentioned in the directions--and served with crackers. I'll definitely be making this one again--thanks for posting!
This was a lovely dip! I used non-fat cream cheese and it came out wonderfully. I took it to my family's Thanksgiving dinner and everyone liked it. Thanks!
What a great combination! This is fabulous and easy - two of my favorite things. I will be making this regularly. Thanks.
