Almond Raisin Dip
Use leftover Almond Raisin Dip for stuffed French toast. Spread between 2 pieces of buttered bread. Dip in a mixture of 1 beaten egg, 1/4 cup milk and 1 teaspoon sugar. Sauté toast in butter until browned on both sides.
12 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
1 1/2 cup raisins
1 cup sliced almonds
Beat cream cheese, butter, sugar and sour cream in a medium bowl with an electric mixer set at medium speed until creamy, about 1 minute.
Stir raisins and almonds into cream cheese mixture; mix well.
Spoon mixture into a small serving bowl. Cover; chill spread until ready to use.
Place serving bowl on a platter. Surround with assorted crackers.
Almond Raisin Dip tip: For a quick and elegant hors doeuvre, pipe the softened cheese spread onto crackers using a pastry bag with a large star tip. Top each cracker with sliced almonds.
