Placing the cream cheese in the micro for 25 seconds was perfect for mix in the ingredients. I mixed everything except for the crab to blend together then gentle tossed the lump crab meat. I also sprayed the dish before adding the dip. I didn`t toast the almond slices because the almonds would toast while in the oven it doesn`t take much for then to brown. Served with crackers.
