This one is best whipped up in a stand mixer or food processor to make sure it gets nice and fluffy, although if you don’t have either you can mix by hand – just make sure your cream cheese is soft.
In a stand mixer bowl or food processor, whip together cream cheese and sour cream. Scrape down sides of bowl and make sure they are evenly blended. Add 2 tablespoons maple syrup. Blend well. Taste. Add more if you like a sweeter dip.
Blend in crumbled bacon, reserving a small amount for garnish if desired. Refrigerate and use within one week. Makes about 2 cups.
This one would work great with apples and pears, hard bread sticks or pretzels, and possibly celery and kohlrabi strips, depending on your flavor preferences.
