Cranberry Chambord Spread


All I can say is Oh My Gosh!!
Gotta love it when an experiment turns out to be delish!! This turned out to be trouble and as a result my dinner HA!!
Here is a treat for the adults (as you can see...still in my red phase for V-Day...lol). A sweet and tasty spread perfect for crackers or apple slices!
I plan on serving this as part of a cheese board this Saturday for a girls night in.

Cranberry Chambord Spread

8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
2-3 Tablespoons of sugar (more or less to your taste)
3/4 cup dried cranberries

Fill a small bowl with the cranberries and pour in just enough Chambord to cover them. Cover and set aside for 3 hours or more, stirring around every so often.
Drain cranberries (don't squeeze them or anything, just drain most of the liquid)
Combine with softened cream cheese and sugar and stir well until fully incorporated.
Refrigerate for at least an hour prior to serving.
Serve in a small crock or invert onto a cheese tray with apple slices and or crackers.




  1. Oh my gosh is an understatement. This dip looks fantastic!

  3. yes please. I've been wanting to make cranberry butter but now I want cream cheese!

  4. wow girl this looks amazing, I love the cranberry color.


  5. Woooooow! This has to be to die for! It looks amazing and the ingredients make it so that it can ONLY be amazing!

  6. Wish I had seen this a couple of days ago, Colleen. Looks like a perfect Super Bowl appetizer.

  7. Oh my gosh is right!!!! I can't wait to try this! We love fruit butters 'round here!
