I bought a brick of cream cheese and I'd like to make it into a spread (like the kind you buy in a tub). Any ideas?

Take a 8 oz. block of cream cheese, at room temperature place in a bowl. Pour hot pepper jelly over it & serve with assorted crackers. For Christmas, it's pretty, to do one with red pepper jelly and one with green pepper jelly.

Here's how to make your own whipped cream cheese instead of paying extra for it at the market. Beat cream cheese in a bowl while slowly adding 3 to 4 tablespoons of milk per 8 ounces of cream cheese. It's as easy, peasy as that. ;-)

When mixing cream cheese, add a tablespoon or two of milk to make it smoother.
