Peaches and Cream Spread: My Sincere Apologies
Hi everybody :)
I come to you today offering my sincere apologies; I'm so sorry. I didn't know August was Peach Month. Some food blogger I am, here we are at the tail-end of August and I didn't post a single peach recipe. Oh the shame of it all, and me being from the Peach State at that. Shame. Shame. Shame. :( In my hopes to right my wrong, I bring you this recipe from my cookbook collection.
Peaches and Cream Spread adapted from Gifts That Taste Good
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup confectioners sugar
3 tablespoons peach preserves
3 tablespoons peach schnapps or peach nectar
In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add remaining ingredients, blending well. Store in airtight container in refrigerator. Serve with gingersnaps. date nut bread, or favorite quick bread. Yield: about 1 1/4 cups of spread.
What I Think:
This was GREAT! Like all spreads or dips, be sure to prepare this ahead of time to give the flavors a chance to mellow.
This is one of those recipes were the flavors can be easily swapped out to whatever you like, for examples:
Cherry and Cream - Cherry Jam and Cherry Liqueur served with vanilla wafers.
Apple and Cream - Apple Schnapps and Apple Jam served with Gingersnaps
Strawberry and Cream - Strawberry Jam and Strawberry Liqueur or nectar served with vanilla wafers
Mocha and Cream - Kahlua and Chocolate Chips served with Graham Crackers
Pina Colada and Cream - Pineapple Jam and Light Rum served with Coconut Shortbread Cookies
Lemon or Lime and Cream - Lemon or Lime Curd and Limoncello liqueur served with Gingersnaps
So have fun and experiment; the possibilities are endless. :)
ENJOY! Come again.....
