Turn any bagel into a cinnamon-raisin bagel with this delicious spread. The key is to soften the cream cheese before beating it with a hand mixer, otherwise it won't get fully smooth. Store any leftovers in the fridge, but make sure to bring to room temperature before serving. Out of bagels? Try this on toast or English muffins.


  • 1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened

  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ cup raisins

  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts, toasted

  • Toasted bagels


  1. Beat cream cheese, brown sugar, and cinnamon with an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment on high speed until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Fold in raisins and walnuts. Serve on bagels.
