Apricot Spread-baked

Pat Duran


Enjoy the fruit and cheese flavors of this spread on your favorite crackers or pita chips.
If you would like it a little spicier spread add 2 Tablespoons of mango chutney to the cream cheese mixture before spreading into the pie plate. You will want to double this recipe- it is that good.
