I thought this made a nice change from all of the "veggie" butters out there. Great for toast and bagels!
Yields: 3/4 cup
2 tablespoons dried fruit (cranberries, blueberries, etc.)
1/2 cup boiling water
1/2 cup margarine or butter, softened
3 tablespoons powdered sugar
In a small bowl combine dried cranberries or dried blueberries and boiling water. Let stand 10 minutes.
Drain well and finely chop berries. Stir together the 1/2 cup margarine or butter, powdered sugar, and the cranberries or blueberries. Cover and let chill at least 1 hour before serving to allow flavors to blend.
