I think the orange-cranberry combination is the key to this tongue-tingling cream cheese spread. Serve it with your favorite crackers and watch it disappear!

"I made this for the first time this Thanksgiving. My husband has already requested it for Christmas. Very tasty and a different type of cheese spread. Love it."

"We Love This! Since my family doesn't care for orange zest/peel nor chopped nuts, I left out the orange peel and added some ground hazelnuts. It is a favorite of ours and disappears quickly!"
