Maple Pecan Schmear


8 ounces cream cheese, softened (You may substitute low-fat cream cheese.)

1/4 cup pecans, toasted and chopped

3 tablespoons maple syrup

Milk, for thinning if desired


Combine all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl; beat with a wooden spoon or in a mixer until thoroughly combined. (For a thinner consistency, add a few drops of milk while stirring.)

Spoon schmear into a small crock or bowl and refrigerate until needed.
