Neal's Fruit Dip

strawberriesA friend of mine was a premiere caterer/event planner here for quite some time.  He came up with this dip for his clients and I had to practically beg to get it.  This is a great, very easy recipe that’s perfect for Summer entertaining.  It is so easy, it will probably take you longer to read this recipe than it will to make it.  All you need is 1 lb of cream cheese (room temperature), ½ Cup plus 1 tbsp brown sugar and ¾ tsp cinnamon.  Put all ingredients in a food processor and blend for 5 minutes until very well incorporated.  You may need to scrape down the sides of the processor once or twice.  Place in a covered container and refrigerate for several hours or over night so it sets.  My favorite fruit to dip into this lovely bit of lovely is strawberries but Granny Smith apples, grapes and pineapple work well, too.  If you use apples, toss the apple pieces lightly with lemon juice to keep them from turning brown.  If you’re using strawberries, all you need is a bottle of champagne and you’re well on your way to, well…you can use your imagination.  Enjoy!
