I've made this three times in the past week because DH smoked a ton of steelhead. Everyone who tried it raved about it so I made extra batches to send home with them.

Smoked Salmon Dip

6 oz smoked salmon (drained if you are using canned - and I'm sure I use more than 6 oz of fresh smoked salmon) 8 oz. cream cheese 8 oz. sour cream 1/2 package powdered ranch dressing mix

Mix well and grab the crackers!

Good on bagels or celery sticks too.

Yum, Angela, I had nearly the same thing for Easter, but I used smoked salmon that Elery smoked from the last salmon filet in the freezer from last summer's fishing trip.

Steelhead is pretty strong, so just about the only way I really like it is smoked.

Good choice Kathy. I make this often when an appetizer is called for. I makes a large amount so I halved the recipe for anyone interested.

Cognac Dream Fruit Dip

12 ounces cream cheese 1 cup confectioners sugar, unsifted 7 ounces marshmallow creme 1 cup sour cream 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 2 teaspoons almond extract 2 teaspoons cinnamon 2 tablespoons cognac

Half Recipe

6 ounces cream cheese ½ cup confectioners sugar, unsifted 4 ounces marshmallow crème ½ cup sour cream 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 teaspoon almond extract 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 tablespoon cognac (optional, but I use more than 1 tbls)

In small bowl of electric mixer, cream the cheese until soft and smooth. Add the confectioners sugar and beat until well-blended. Add the sour cream and the rest of the ingredients. Blend just until well-combined. Cover and chill several hours before serving with apples, pears, strawberries.
