Cream Cheese Apple Dip

With a glut of apples in the house from the orchard, I have been thinking up all sorts of ways to use them. We had sandwiches for dinner the other night and I wanted something to do with some cold apples, since we'd had applesauce the night before. I found this incredibly simple Apple Dip at and it was a huge hit. Every single bit was scooped up before dinner was over. It couldn't be easier -- I put it together while our sandwiches heated up in the oven.

It tasted very caramel-y combined with the yummy richness of the cream cheese. It was actually amazing that there was no caramel in it.

The only changes I made were to use one teaspoon of vanilla instead of the tablespoon which I felt would be too strong, and I started with whipped cream cheese (8 oz.) so it was nice and fluffy. My changes are recorded here.

Cream Cheese Apple Dip

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 t. vanilla extract
Whip together the cream cheese, brown sugar, and vanilla extract until the sugar has dissolved, and the mixture is smooth. Chill until ready to serve.

mmm I've made similar dips--one with chopped peanuts and peanut butter in there too. Such a great way to eat all those fall apples :)
