"Very good on "breakfast" type bagels. Also had it with apples and was very good as a fruit dip. Would also work very well as a dip for cookies! Great Fall/Winter recipe. Thanks for sharing."

"I just bought cinnamon whole wheat bagels and wanted something different to spread on them other than plain cream cheese. I used 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar and only 1/2 teaspoon of maple extract. I also did not use the whipped topping. This spread is fantastic without it. Perfect for fall!"

"I was looking for a low fat bagel spread for the fall season and this spread is absolutely wonderful. I think this will also work well as a dip for parties, paired w/cinnamon graham cracker sticks.....mmmmmmmm. Will definitely make this again!"
