Peach and Pecan Dip

Peach and Pecan Dip is perfect for summertime entertaining.

With just a few simple ingredients you can have the most amazing appetizer. It’s as easy as 1-2-3 and can be whipped up in a snap.

This is the dish that I rely on for spur-of –the- moment guests and it often answers, so many times, my “What can I bring?” question.  So this delicious Peach and Pecan Dip has you covered!

All you need is peach preserves, cream cheese, chopped pecans and a box of your favorite crackers. Of course, we Southerners love our Ritz’s!

Here are a few tips and ideas for this dip:

  • To spice it up a little, chopped up a fresh jalapeno pepper and sauté in olive oil. Add the chopped jalapenos to the peach preserves.
  • Serve the dip individually on crackers or on open faced sandwiches for a tea, bridal shower, baby shower, front porch parties etc.
  • Spread on bagels, toast, or biscuits.
  • This is perfect to take on picnics or an outside concert in the park.
  • Substitute other favors of fruit preserves for the peach for something different. Some of my other favorites are strawberry, raspberry, and blackberry.

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 5 minutes

  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
