This really is a great and versatile spread! Made just as directed and loved the fruit/nut combo with the jack and cream cheese. One day enjoyed on reduced-fat wheat thins and triscuits; the next day spread on whole wheat bread and grilled for a creamy grilled cheese sandwich. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
