I feel like Memorial Day weekend kind of kicks off the start of summer. The local pool opens, the weather seems to get warmer and everyone gets that summer kind of attitude. We still have two more days of school, but it sure feels like summer. The poor kids are having a hard time going to school these last couple of days. It is hard to go to school when you know the pool down the street is open and just waiting for a summer of fun!
Summer definitely brings a bounty of fruit and this Cheesecake Dip pairs perfectly with it all. Of course if a cheesecake craving attack comes late at night and all you have is graham crackers; don’t worry it will do. That may have something to do with the inspiration of this dip. ;) And since this dip comes together in only a couple of minutes, it is perfect for those impromptu summer gatherings!!
8 oz package cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 Tbls. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add powdered sugar, lemon juice and vanilla and mix until smooth. If you want a thinner consistency, milk can be added. Start with a couple of teaspoons and slowly add until desired consistency is reached. Serve with fresh fruit, graham crackers, or cookies. Store leftover dip in the refrigerator up to a week.
