This recipe is another that I made up based on something I got from a grocery store. It is a great appetizer and is super simple.
Cranberry, Pecan, and Honey Torte
2 8-oz blocks of cream cheese (I use the 1/3 less fat kind) room temperature
2/3 cup dried cranberries
2/3 cup sweetened pecans (I find these by the salad dressing and croutons)
1 Tbsp Honey
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
Beat cream cheese, sugar and honey in stand mixer or with hand mixer. Then by hand, stir in 1/3 cup each cranberries and pecans.
Line a bowl or plastic container with wax paper - I used a 4 cup rectangular tupperware container. Mix together remaining cranberries and pecans and spread in bottom of paper lined dish. Add the cream cheese mixture to the top. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours. Put a plate on the top of the container it's stored in and flip over so the layer of pecans/cranberries is on top. Serve with Wheat Thins or other crackers or breads.
