Recipe: Chinese Five Spice Cream Cheese dip

Recipe: Chinese Five Spice Cream Cheese dip

My obsession with Chinese five-spice powder rages again. I found this recipe for Spiced Cream Cheese Dip. I swapped the cinnamon with the five-spice combo, which is much bolder by comparison.

Spiced Cream Cheese Dip

adapted from original recipe by Monet at Anecdotes and Apple Cores

1 package cream cheese, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder

Cream the sugar, five-spice powder and cream cheese until light and fluffy (about three minutes).

I tried this “dip” with some cinnamon- and raisin-flavored pretzel sticks. But I couldn’t help thinking this recipe worked better as frosting. Spread over brownies, the dip-frosting certainly brought some life to otherwise staid sweets.

On reflection, I’d replace the granulated sugar with confectioner’s sugar for a smoother, more frosting-like consistency.
