Ingredients
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 T lemon zest
  • 3 T sugar, divided
  • 1/2 c blackberries
Instructions
  1. Mascerate blackberries in 2 T sugar for 5-10 minutes. If the berries are very tart, you may want to use slightly more sugar. Smash the berries using a fork until the mixture resembles a jam. 

  2. Stir half of the mixture into the softened cream cheese and add 1 T of sugar. Add additional blackberry mixture until a desired consistency is reached. Add in the lemon zest and any additional sugar if you would like the spread to be slightly sweeter.
