Zesty Apricot Cream Cheese Spread
A flavorful, spreadable cream cheese is a great alternative to butter. We like to use it on quick breads-such as zucchini bread or date-nut bread-or on muffins.
Why This Recipe Works
To make it easy to incorporate the ingredients into our Zesty Apricot Cream Cheese Spread, we softened the cream cheese at room temperature for at least one hour. Apricot jam added flavor and sweetness, and grated lemon zest brought a strong, assertive flavor to our spread.
