Cranberry Amaretto Chutney with Cream Cheese
- 2 – 8 oz cream cheese
- 2 C cranberries – fresh or frozen
- 1 C sugar
- 1 T +1 t lemon juice
- 1/2 t of lemon rind
- 1/4 C amaretto
- 1 T orange marmalade I have subbed apricot jam before too and it's tasty!
Sometimes I only use one block of cream cheese to serve. It just depends on the proportion of chutney to cheese that you like.
Also, even though the original directions call for you to stir the amaretto into the boiled cranberry mixture OFF the heat, I will bring it back to a boil so some of the alcohol cooks off. Just remember that if you will have children (or others who are alcohol averse) around who might be sampling this appetizer!
