Sweetened Cream Cheese Spread

July 14, 2011

Easy, simple recipes are the best. Especially when the outcome is terrific. That is how I feel about this cream cheese spread. It is THE most basic thing you could make… but it is sooooooo good!!! And you can do so much with it too!

I call this a spread and not a dip because the consistency is a little thick. If you wanted to make it into a dip for say, fruit, just add a little cream or half and half. Milk may do the trick, but it will lack in flavor and probably make it more water than anything else.

Sweetened Cream Cheese Spread
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup confectioners sugar
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  1. Blend all ingredients together in small bowl with spatula.

Anyways, you can use this for lot’s of stuff. I like it on cinnamon raisin bread- yummmm! But you could spread it on graham crackers or cookies or brownies… The list is endless. You could put it on plain toast or flavored bagels. You can even flavor the spread by adding cinnamon to it. Then it would really be a hit a plain toast! Imagine. This is just so good and so easy. Definitely a staple recipe.

What could I use instead of confectioners sugar? Could I use diet sugar

This was absolutely delicious. I used it to fill homemade biscuits and cooked them and it was perfect. Not too sweet, just right! Amazing! Will definitely save this recipe! Thank you for posting!
