Gingerbread Spread

This delicious Gingerbread Spread tastes like Christmas!

I love holiday flavors. You know the ones I mean: pumpkin, apple, peppermint, gingerbread. Oh gingerbread, the quintessential flavor of Christmas!

Who hasn't decorated a gingerbread bread house or devoured a plate full of gingerbread boy cookies? This time of the year, gingerbread is so popular!

I wanted to stick with my flavors of the season theme for this month's Secret Recipe Club. The past two months I made something apple and pumpkin.

I was assigned Chris' blog, Mele Cotte. Did you know Mele Cotte means baked apple in Italian?  I love baked apples, so I knew I would love Chris' blog. I had plenty of options to choose from as her recipe catalog is quite impressive! After narrowing down my list, I settled on making Gingerbread Spread.

This spread was so easy to create as it is simply a spiced cream cheese. I also found its uses to be extremely versatile. I enjoyed this spread on a toasted bagel as well as as a dip for animal crackers. I think it would also pair wonderfully with sliced apples or graham crackers.
