Breakfast Cream Cheese and Jam

Makes about 1/2 cup


I love orange marmalade, plum jam, or boysenberry preserves already mixed into my cream cheese for toast. This ends up tasting like a whole lot more than just the sum of its parts.


4 ounces cream cheese, whipped soy cream cheese,
   or kefir cheese, at room temperature
2 heaping tablespoons fruit preserves,
   marmalade, or jam (choose your flavor)


Using a heavy-duty electric mixer on low speed or a food processor fitted with the metal blade, beat or pulse the cream cheese and preserves until smooth. Use a rubber spatula to scrape into a small bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Let stand 15 minutes at room temperature for easiest spreading.
