Honey Walnut Cream Cheese


We came up with this recipe for honey walnut cream cheese after trying Trader Joe's version. This was much better since we used the orange blossom honey my mom buys from the local farmers' market. She suggests toasting the walnuts. To make a sweeter version, add a tablespoon of granulated sugar while pulsing in the processor. Spread a layer on a slice of your favorite bread and enjoy!

  • 10 walnut halves

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese (such as Philadelphia®), softened

  • ¼ cup orange blossom honey


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Place walnuts on a baking sheet. Bake until toasted and fragrant, about 10 minutes. Transfer walnuts to a plate to cool. When walnuts are cool, transfer to a resealable plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin.

  3. Combine cream cheese, honey, and walnuts in a food processor and pulse until creamy.


You can also try mixing in a tub of Cool Whip whipped topping and use it as a spread over or between two layers of a sponge cake.
