Every home cook needs a secret weapon in her freezer. No I don’t mean an ice dagger (although I do happen to have one hanging off the ceiling of my standing freezer). I’m talking about a special recipe that can fill a variety of needs.

My friends, this cheese spread is my secret weapon.I recently served this to families at the Tukwila Kids’ Fest. I offered two choices, apple butter or cheese spread.
