Basic Cream Cheese Fruit Dip

1 8-ounce package cream cheese,softened
3 tablespoons sugar
1 cup sour cream or Mascarpone
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine all ingredients and beat until smooth and creamy.


Almond Fruit Dip:

Add 3 tablespoons finely chopped almonds and 1 1/2 teaspoons almond liqueur to the basic recipe. Garnish with 1 tablespoon finely chopped almonds, if desired.

Raspberry Fruit Dip:

Puree 1 cup sweetened raspberries (aprox. 1 10-ounce package). Spoon half the basic recipe into a serving dish and smooth. Top with half the raspberry puree and smooth. Repeat.

    If you like this you might also want to try warm Very Berry Fondue. After all, what is fondue if not dip?

Lemon Fruit Dip:

Add zest of 1 lemon, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, and 1 extra tablespoon sugar to the basic cream cheese recipe.

Marshmallow Fruit Dip:

Add 1/2 cup marshmallow creme to the basic recipe.

All recipes:

Chill and serve with assorted fruit dippers such as bananas, grapes, kiwi, apple, pineapple, strawberries, raspberries, and papaya, cut into bite-size pieces, if necessary. Bagel bites are good, too. Makes 2 to 3 cups.

Orange Half Stuffed with Fruit Dip,

Presentation Tip:

Serve your Fruit Dips in a "fruit bowl."

Cut an orange or grapefruit in half crosswise. Cut a thin slice off the bottom of each half so it sits flat. Carefully slice around the edge of the fruit, between the fruit and the peel. Remove the fruit and the membrane.

Spoon the dip into the shells and serve. Or, serve one and refrigerate the other one for later.
