Honey Pecan Cream Cheese Spread

Honey pecan cream cheese is one of my favorite cream cheese flavors.  Ever.  The other day I read the ingredients on a package I bought from a local deli.  There were a few ingredients that I couldn't pronounce (which I always hate), but the one that stuck out the most... sour cream.  Huh?  Sour cream was in my sweet honey pecan cream cheese?  I took another bite of my bagel and realized sour cream is what gave it such a nice tangy flavor.  Guess who went home and tried to recreate it?
I did!


16 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup honey
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg, freshly ground
1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted


In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese, sour cream, honey, cinnamon and nutmeg using a mixer until smooth.  Fold in pecans.
This would be fun to make for a brunch and serve with mini bagels:)
This is ridiculously easy to make.
I chopped my chopped pecans a little more to make it easier to spread the cream cheese out thinner on my bagels.
