3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Stir the cream cheese with the sugars and vanilla until creamy. Fold in nuts if using. Serve with apple wedges or any kind of fruit desired.
- 1 egg white, at room temperature
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
- 1 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Grease a cookie sheet.
Beat egg whites and salt until soft peaks form. Gradually add brown sugar, beating constantly, until stiff peaks form. Fold in pecans.
