Cranberry Cheese Spread

Okay, I'm not excatly sure what is Halloween about this appetizer, but it was in my Halloween Taste of Home Magazine and it was so yummy! I didn't spread mine over an entire plate like they did in the picture. Instead I made up the mixture and let it set up in a bowl. Then I transfered it to a plate. It came out in an almost perfect shape. For crackers I had multi grain wheat thins and another multi grain cracker. I thought they would be better than a salty type cracker.

Cranberry Cheese Spread
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 can (16 ounces) whole-berry cranberry sauce
1/3 cup slivered almonds, toasted
Assorted crackers
Directions: In a small mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream, honey and cinnamon until smooth. Spread onto a serving dish or plate. In a small bowl, stir cranberry sauce until it reaches spreading consistency; spread over cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle with almonds. Cover and refrigerate for 2-3 hours. Serve with crackers. Yield: 12-14 servings.
