What a special treat this was with our bagels and coffee this morning! A perfect recipe to tuck away for the holidays. Serve as a breakfast spread with bagels, muffins or homemade rolls, or as a wonderful addition to an hors d'oeuvre tray served with an assortment of specialty crackers and toasts.

A perfect blend of holiday flavors... cranberries, oranges, and pecans blended with smooth, rich cream cheese.

And, as always, easy and economical too... my favorite kind of recipe! =)

This rich and creamy spread screams the holidays. The sweet citrus combination of the orange and tart cranberries is always yummy. Mixed with cream cheese and crunchy pecans, this a winner. This would be great to set out during busy holiday mornings for everyone to smear on some toast or bagels. It's a simple spread and will make your family think you really made something special for them. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
