Make your own flavored cream cheese by stirring in fresh, in-season cherries. We like the flavor of black cherries, but any kind will work. Spread this on your morning bagel or sandwich it between graham crackers for a cherry cheesecake-inspired snack.

Delicious I recommend using a blender on low for a few seconds to mix thoroughly. Also I added more chopped cherries rather than sugar. Read More
