  • 8 oz cream cheese softened to room temperature
  • ½ tsp almond extract
  • 1 Tbsp milk
  • 1 Tbsp maraschino cherry juice
  • ¼ cup maraschino cherries drained and chopped


  • Mix the cream cheese, almond extract, milk and cherry juice with an electric mixer until well combined and fluffy.
  • Gently fold in the maraschino cherries and serve as a spread on bagels or toast. This will stay good in the refrigerator for a couple of weeks.


The original recipe called for 2 Tbsp milk and I changed that to 1 Tbsp milk and 1 Tbsp cherry juice because I like the extra cherry flavor - you can adjust this however you'd like to get the desired flavor. Just make sure that the total liquid is equivalent to 2 tablespoons.
