Cream Cheese Spread
Making a cream cheese spread is easy. Start with softened cream cheese. Whip in a stand mixer or with a hand mixer until cheese is fluffy. Add 1-3 tbsp of your desired seasoning (start with 1 tbsp and keep adding until cheese reaches your desired flavor). Mix until combined. Refrigerate for at least one hour to allow flavors to set. For the Apple Pie and Pumpkin Pie cream cheese spread, add ½ tsp-1 tsp of vanilla extract to the cream cheese along with the seasoning. Mix well.
