Raspberry Cheese Spread Recipe

Edit: The fonts I use for my recipe cards are AFL Font Nonmetric for the typewriter-like print and Becky Higgins' CK Becky font. You can find Becky's font through the Creating Keepsakes website. Come back at 11pm Central Time for my Papertrey newsletter post. See ya soon!

Happy Hotter than Heck Wednesday! Someone turned up the temperature in Kansas that's for sure. It's so hot and muggy outside, ugh! And tonight we have two back to back softball games for the girls. Double UGH!!

I know how you all love my recipes so I wanted to share one that is in my Papertrey gallery for the June release. It's called Raspberry Cheese Spread....kinda funny ingredients but it's SO good. I can't wait to take this to a party!!Of course I had to make a pretty recipe card, you know me!! I used Candice's new release called Fruitful. There's also a coordinating stamp set called Fruitful Sentiments that you'll absolutely love if you're into making jams, jellies and homemade gifts.
I printed my recipe on Kraft Cardstock (4" x 6" finished size...click on Recipe label at the end of the post to scroll through other recipes and to find fonts). I stitched around my recipe card and layered it onto Papertrey Spring Moss Cardstock. The word *raspberry* is stamped in the new Scarlet Jewel ink, soooo pretty! I masked two of the raspberry images and stamped them using the rock and roll technique. I stamped the raspberry in Scarlet Jewel and then used a SU! purple ink to roll the stamp to create a darker purple outline on the raspberries. Stems are Ripe Avocado. Raspberry images are cut and embossed with a Spellbinder's Labels 4 Die Template. Ribbon snippets and Vintage Buttons are Spring Moss and Scarlet Jewel. I absolutely LOVE these colors paired together.
Hope you enjoy the recipe! Here's a little morslet of goodness for your viewing pleasure!
And here's the recipe that you can cut and paste or print. Recipe from Taste of Home.

Raspberry Cheese Spread
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup mayonnaise
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
3 green onions, finely chopped
1 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup seedless raspberry preserves
In small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and mayonnaise until blended. Beat in cheeses and onions. Stir in pecans. Spread into a plastic wrap-lined 9 round dish. Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour. Invert onto a serving plate; spread with preserves. Serve with crackers.

Note: The 1/4 cup of raspberry preserves is a little skimpy......I'd go ahead and add a good 1/2 cup or more to ensure that each little scooplet gets some raspberry goodness. ;)

This looks delish...thought I would probably swap out cherry preserves for the raspberry.

I love all your recipe cards!

You always post yummy recipes. I love your idea of presenting the hostess with the recipe if you are taking the item to an event. That you do exceedingly well too! Thanks.

Sounds great. I can't wait to try it. Don't know if you've ever done this or not, but we just use a block of cream cheese and put jalapeno pepper jelly on top. Hope you enjoy it.

Margaret de Witt said...

Wow. This looks so good. I also love your recipe card. Very nice. I can picture a whole recipe box full of cards that look like that.

Per usual, a beautiful recipe card. The recipe sounds great too. Could you please share the font that you use for the directions on the recipe cards. Looking forward to your porch decorations for your big blast on the 4th. (Hope to borrow some ideas for our big blast on the 4th.)
We are cold and raining here in New Hampshire, wish I was in Kansas!!!

As usual a fantastic recipe card! And the best thing - we have all the ingredients here in the U.K. as well *lol*. At first i thought I have mis-read the instructions: Mayonnaise, Cheddar and Mozzarella Cheese, Onions - and Raspberry Jam...? But it looks lovely together.

Have a lovely weekend,

YUMMY! I saw this in the PTI gallery! Cant wait to make it up!!! (cant WAIT to get my PTI order! LOL!)

patriciad said...

Well now, isn't this just an interesting combo of ingredients?? It looks absolutely delish. Yummers.

Gina said...

Mmmm! We call that "the Cheese Thing" at my house - LOL. I make it a little differently, though - using only cheddar, mayo, pecans, green onions and raspberry preserves - with the addition of Cavender's Greek Seasoning (mmmmmm!) I'm definitely going to try yours, too, because hello? Added CREAM CHEESE!?! Nothing with cream cheese can be bad! Ever! Beautiful recipe card, too!!!
