DIRECTIONS

  • Place cottage cheese in a blender or food processor. Cover and blend or pulse until smooth.
  • Transfer cottage cheese to a medium bowl. Stir in sour cream, brown sugar, pecans, cherries and lemon zest.
  • Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to 8 hours. (Spread can be kept chilled longer but cherries will begin to stain).
  • Serve as a spread for muffins, bagels, English muffins or toast.
  • * To toast the pecans - preheat oven to 350ºF. Spread nuts in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 5-7 minutes or until lightly toasted.
