My recipe of the day is for cranberry jalapeno cheese spread which utilizes one of my favorite things to mix into cheese spreads, which is jalapeno jelly. The dried cranberries work with the sweet and spicy character making this perfect for crackers.

I make my own sugarless jalapeno jelly but you can use the kind from the store- just give the green jelly a wide berth.

All of this comes together in just a few minutes once you get the cream cheese to room temperature (set it out an hour earlier).

There isn't a whole lot to say about this except that it is really good. You'll get just over three cups of this but don't expect it to hang around since it moves fast. I think you'll find it perfect for holiday parties as well as game day snacking. You can make this ahead and most certainly can keep it refrigerated in tubs for about a week. I've never tried to freeze it though and don't think I would go there, as most cheese doesn't fare well being frozen.

Before this chills up it works well as a dip but once it chills it is more of a spread consistency.

You can make melba toast ahead. Have you tried my recipe for it? And sorry I don't have my jalapeno jelly posted. I ran out of time to do that when peppers were in season. And red ones can be so hard to find otherwise. I promise to get to it next year.
