Cream Cheese Spreads

As part of Paige's Baptism brunch, I served mini bagels with a couple different flavored cream cheeses. These aren't really exact recipes - add or subtract to taste.

Sweet Orange
4 oz. softened cream cheese
zest of 1/2 orange
1 Tbsp. powdered sugar - more or less to taste
dash of salt

Mix well and chill for several hours.

Sun-dried Tomato & Basil
4 oz. softened cream cheese
3 or 4 sun-dried tomatoes(that have been packed in olive oil), finely chopped
4 or so fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
Couple dashes of garlic salt

Mix well and chill for several hours.

Hey Megan!
I just found this through MIchelle Hall's blog. I'm so happy I did! Another food blog I love is She pulls from a lot of the same blogs you have on your sidebar but has a lot of other fun ideas and great food too. LOVE her peanut butter popcorn! Anyway, hope you don't mind me poking around your food blog. Thanks for sharing! :)
