This one is so simple, takes such a short time -- yet can be presented very attractively. And the sharp pepper along with the crisp cranberry and sweet marmalade gives a variety of flavors. I've seen it served in a round plate, but it also makes a nice display in an oblong serving dish with the crackers streamed along side.
Spread 1 softened pkg 8 oz cream cheese into bottom of 9” pie plate -- or an oblong serving dish.
½ cup whole berry cranberry sauce
¼ cup orange marmalade
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Spread mixture on cream cheese
Sprinkle w/ ¼ cup toasted almonds.
