Cranberry and Cream Cheese spread

This is totally one of my winter favorites. I usually bring this to holidays where an appetizer is required and people rave over it! The recipe makes enough for 2 appetizers so if you have a big group it's great or if it's a small group save it for the next gathering!

1 bag Oceanspray Cranberries
1 cup apple cider
1 cup sugar
1t ground cloves
1t cinnamon

1 block of cream cheese

In a medium sauce pan combine Cranberries, cider, sugar, cloves and cinnamon. Bring to a boil on medium heat for about 10 minutes until cranberries begin to pop. Once you hear them pop using a potato masher, smoosh the berries into a nice jelly like consistency.
I usually cool to room temperature and pour 1/2 of the mixture over a block of cream cheese.
If you have a large group go ahead and use 2 blocks of cream cheese and pour mixture over both.
Enjoy!! Serve with crackers
