Cinnamon Apple Spread with Graham Crackers
I am so excited for all of the family get-togethers that will be happening over the next few months! Our neighborhood is already planning pot-lucks and everyone in general seems so much more social and happy this time of year… which is why it’s my absolute favorite season! I love creating new, yummy dishes but the hard part is ending up with so much more food than my family of four can consume. So cue those large gatherings where I can cook and bake for a crowd and I’m one happy girl!
In my family, when we say dinner is at 6 that means it is encouraged that you show up around 4 to sit and socialize for a while beforehand. The kids all run around and play, the adults can catch up with each other, and delicious appetizers are passed around for everyone to enjoy. This fall I decided I wanted to try a new Cinnamon Apple Spread that was recommended to me by a friend and ohhhmygoodness, it was an immediate HIT! The children cleared half of the bowl before parents were even able to try it but, you know, adulting is tough. This is definitely going to be on my Thanksgiving menu now as well!! No doubt about it!
When I was given the recipe it was initially recommended that this spread be served with Honey Maid® Graham Crackers but while I was roaming our commissary picking up the ingredients, I discovered something that looked even better… LIMITED EDITION Nutmeg and Cinnamon Triscuits®! Yaaas! They are just as delish as they sound! Make sure you try this recipe with both!!
These are the ingredients that you’ll need:
- 1 pkg. (8 oz.) brick cream cheese, softened
- 3 Tbsp. apple juice
- 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 3/4 cup finely chopped apples
- 24 HONEY MAID® Honey Grahams OR Nutmeg & Cinnamon TRISCUITS®
Step 1) Beat cream cheese, apple juice and cinnamon in medium bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Stir in apples; cover.
Step 2) Refrigerate at least 1 hour to allow flavors to blend.
Step 3) Serve as a spread!
And you wanna hear something else totally awesome about this dish!?? It only takes 10 minutes to whip together!!! This is perfect for even the busiest person always on the go!
So let me know what you think – which is better? Honey Maid® or Triscuits®? Make sure you grab those Nutmeg & Cinnamon Triscuits® from your local commissary while you can – they are limited edition!! AND… only $1.99!!
