Cream Cheese Pecan Dip with Gingerbread Honey

Cream Cheese Pecan Dip with Little Shire's Gingerbread Honey

Little Shire Farm's gingerbread honey inspired me to make this cream cheese pecan dip.  It literally tastes like gingerbread, but contains no natural or artificial flavors- it's just pure local honey infused with real spices.  

Gingerbread honey combined with pecan butter and cream cheese makes the perfect dip for apples or crackers.  We really like Simple Mills Honey Cinnamon Sweet Thins (shown in the picture).  These grain free crackers taste like graham crackers!  They are cheapest when available at Costco.

South Dakota Local Gingerbread Honey

Recipe note:

The pecan butter mixture and the cream cheese mixture can be prepared ahead of time, but wait until serving to layer and assemble the dip


Pecan butter- This can be made at home by processing pecans in a food processer until smooth and creamy.  It can also be purchased.  The best substitution would be almond butter.

Gingerbread honey- Little Shire's cinnamon cardamom honey would be delicious too!

Cream Cheese Pecan Dip with Gingerbread Honey

  • 1/2 cup pecan butter
  • 2 T. Little Shire's gingerbread honey
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 T. maple syrup, powdered xylitol, or powdered sugar
  • Chopped nuts
  • More gingerbread honey for drizzling over the top

Stir together pecan butter and gingerbread honey.  Set aside.

Beat softened cream cheese with vanilla and your choice of sweetener until smooth and fluffy.

Right before serving, spread the honey pecan butter on a serving plate.

Spread the sweetened cream cheese on top.

Sprinkle chopped nuts over cream cheese.

Drizzle more gingerbread honey over the nuts.

Serve with apples and crackers.

(If there is any leftover dip, it's great spread on Breadico's cinnamon raisin bread!)
