Slightly sweet and nutty with just a little crunch! I cut the recipe in half because I wanted to give it a try and I'm glad I did. This was really good and something different to spread on a bagel for a change. I upped the orange zest a bit and next time I might try a toasted walnut and dried cranberry combination to see what that tastes like....

Delicious! I followed the recipe but cut it in half, which yielded about one cup. I used tangerine zest (and probably a little more than the recipe specifies). This is lightly sweet (I thought the raisins and honey would make it overly sweet, but not so) and I loved the nuttiness along with the citrus. The cream cheese flavor is subtle. Perfect on home made cinnamon raisin bagels.

I'm a huge fan of bagels and cream cheese or peanut butter. I love almonds, but I'm not a fan of them in this recipe. The honey, orange and cream cheese are delicious together! I left out the raisins because I don't care for them.

Not good. Maybe it was because I used whipped cream cheese instead of regular but they flavors were not a good combination.
