Recipe from

 This is the third recipe from December’s Ingredient of the Month: Cream Cheese!

This was a delicious dip that went pretty quickly.  I had made apple butter a while back, and wanted to use some of it to make a dip or appetizer for our Christmas Eve celebration. 

The recipe also called for chopped peanuts, which I decided to skip.  I served it with graham crackers and cinnamon raisin bagel chips.  But other options include apple slices, celery, pears, peaches or ginger snaps.

8 ou cream cheese, softened
1/2 c apple butter
1/4 c brown sugar
1/2 t vanilla

Mix all ingredients until smooth.  Chill for at least an hour before serving.
