  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese (I use Tillamook brand for extra sharpness!)
  • 1 cup chopped pecans (You can use pretzels as an alternative)


  • Add the cream cheese, cheddar, and seasonings to a food processor and pulse a few times until combined.
  • Add in the cranberries and pulse just a few more times to break them into smaller bits.
  • Scoop our tablespoon size scoops and roll in the crushed pecans.
  • Serve with crackers or pretzels.
