Goodrich Honey Walnut Cream Cheese

IMG_6985

Almost every weekday morning in college, I got a latte and a whole wheat bagel with honey walnut cream cheese from the school’s coffeehouse in Goodrich. And to be honest, I’ve been craving that cream cheese ever since I graduated. So although I have to move on from my awesome breakfasts in Goodrich (easier said than done), I can still try to recreate the delicious cream cheese from those mornings.

The recipe is very simple – I’ve adapted it from one on Food.com. The only issue is that I haven’t discovered the right proportions to make the cream cheese just like the one I remember. I have a sneaky feeling it involves higher amounts of honey or sugar, but let me know if any Williams grads test this out and find a good mix!

Honey Walnut Cream Cheese (adapted from Food.com)

Ingredients (makes approx. 6-8 servings):

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened  (let it sit out for an hour or so, or you can throw it in the microwave for 20 seconds)
  • 2-3 Tbsp honey (I went with 2.5 Tbsp)
  • 2-3 Tbsp brown sugar (I went with 2 Tbsp)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 oz. crushed walnuts

The first step is the make sure the cream cheese is softened. Then crush the walnuts up (I used a mortar and pestle, but you can also put them in a bag and hit them with something).

Put all the ingredients together in a bowl and mix, or add them to a blender and blend them up. Cool in the fridge, then serve on bagels.

  3. Angela I totally know how you feel!! Let me know if you try out the recipe – I have a sneaky feeling that it might need more sugar than I called for, but I’d love to hear how it goes 🙂 Your blog looks awesome as well!
