Sun Dried Tomato Spread

This is really good stuff.  It disappeared very quickly.  We spread it on Rosemary Olive Spelt bread but really it would be fabulous on any bread.  Or by itself on a spoon.  It's real simple to whip up for an appetizer.

Sun Dried Tomato Spread

8 ounce cream cheese, room temperature
6 sun dried tomatoes
1 clove of garlic
1/2 cup toasted walnuts, chopped

In a food processor whirl garlic and sun dried tomato until it forms a paste.  Add in cream cheese. Remove from processor and fold in walnuts.

MMM a local restaurant used to serve their chicken ciabatta sandwiches with a delicious sun dried tomato spread, then they got rid of it and I have been sad ever since. But now I can make my own sun dried tomato spread at home, thanks so much, I had no clue where to start!
