If you want to try something a little extra special when you serve a sweet bread like banana bread, pumpkin bread, or zucchini bread, try this delectable apple-date spread. My mom made this a few years ago when an exhibit of her botanical art opened at a local gallery. This spread was a big hit.
1 8-oz. package of cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup finely chopped tart apples
1 1/2 cups finely chopped walnuts or pecans
3/4 cup finely chopped dates
Blend cream cheese with milk and cream. Stir in remaining ingredients.
