I love recipes that look fancy but really are simple. This blackberry cream cheese spread is just that - quick and delicious! It makes a great hostess gift whether you're attending a holiday brunch or wine soiree with a few girlfriends. As an appetizer, this blackberry cream cheese spread is amazingly good. Serve it on crostini or crackers with a glass of red zinfandel, or even french toast for breakfast. It’s a super fast appetizer! Set some honey nearby and let guests drizzle a little honey on top for some extra sweetness. It looks so elegant but takes only minutes.

This is easy to prepare but will impress your family and friends. It has citrus undertones from the lemon zest and is slightly sweet. The berries add a nice blackberry flavor and color. We loved this spread on toast, but it is very versatile. Smear it on warm pancakes, biscuits, bagels or a croissant. And, it can easily be made ahead and set out on a breakfast table for everyone to enjoy. Super yummy! The Test Kitchen
