Tips

  • How to soften cream cheese: Put the cream cheese out on the counter about 30 minutes to an hour before use. If you’re short on time, place the completely unwrapped cream cheese on a microwave-safe plate and Microwave on high for 10 to 15 seconds or until softened.
  • Adjust the seasoning: Feel free to add more or extra spices to adjust the taste to your liking. I often add 2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon and ginger for the ultimate fall taste.
  • More servings: As written, the recipe yields about 16 to 20 servings. If you need more servings, simply double the ingredient amounts.
