Make your own flavored cream cheese by stirring in fresh, in-season cherries. We like the flavor of black cherries, but any kind will work. Spread this on your morning bagel or sandwich it between graham crackers for a cherry cheesecake-inspired snack.
Combine cream cheese, cherries, sugar and allspice in a small bowl.
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.
