Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rave reviews from my family! Rave reviews from my family! Read other reviews and also added a few personal touches--I did add craisins and used peach/mango preserves instead of apricots-also added dijon mustard! Since Thanksgiving turkey used oven space, I baked it the night before (minus almonds;)and refrigerated; reheated in microwave and added toasted almonds last. Can't wait to make it again!!

I made this as an appetizer for my women's group and while everyone thought that it looked good, and that it sounded like it would taste good, no one liked it. The spread itself was not of a creamy consistency, and kind of clumped together. The taste of the Ritz crackers seemed to overpower the taste of the spread.

I used low-fat cream cheese and low-fat cheddar, along with about a half cup of no-sugar-added apricot spread instead of the chopped dried apricots. I also added about a teaspoon of dijon mustard to jazz it up a bit. My girlfriends loved it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was excellent. This was excellent. My friends scarfed it right down. I prepared the cheese mixture the night before (added a little Dijon mustard) and refrigerated it. Party day I let it come to room temp, sprinkled with almonds and baked. Perfecto.

I love this hot and cold :-) my mom had a Mexican style mix of cheeses, which tasted great in the mix. I also used my food chopper to cut the the apricots, that worked wonderfully. I would make this for any party.

I made this with fat free cream cheese, low fat sour cream, and 2% grated cheese- no one knew the difference. This is a unique spread and it is now part of my low fat repertoire.
