"My aunt shared this recipe with me some years ago. Everyone is surprised to learn that the wonderful flavor is coming from carrots. This can also good for rolled or ribbon sandwich filling."

1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
finely chopped onion
salt and pepper to taste
This is quite good. Even my picky husband liked it and he usually won't even try anything "different". I might add a pinch of garlic next time.
this turned out horrible. Maybe my carrots were not sweet enough and didn't balance out the pecan flavor? I tried it with several different crackers, and it was not good on any of them! I didn't bring it to my dinner party and would not make it again.
What a surprise! This was a big hit on crackers and has been served on sandwich rounds....glad I tried this one!
It is so easy. I use the food processer and do not have to dirty any dishes. This is my usual contribution to every party I attend, and no one ever complains. I always bring back one EMPTY dish!
Great! I didn't have enough cream cheese, so I added 1/2 c. herb and garlic feta cheese and 1 teaspoon of barley miso.
This is an excellent spread. I even substituted non-dairy cream cheese and eggless mayo and it was superb!! Great alternative to a cheese ball. Thanks for the awesome recipe!!
This was a surprise indeed! I followed the recipe exactly without any changes - fresh, sweet carrots are the key. I served with "Sociables" and they were the perfect compliment to a fantastic appetizer. I would definitely make again!
Refrigerate overnight to let the flavors blend. I did add a bit more onions, but the real difference is adding about 2 tablespoons of finely chopped green pepper. That idea is from another recipe I make. In that recipe, it calls for a small can of crushed pineapple, well drained (squeezed) instead of carrots. Both are great!
