Fig cream cheese dip is a sweet appetizer or snack perfect for afternoon tea or happy hour. 

I wanted a sweet and tangy dip for some cinnamon sugar pita chips, and I think I may have come up the perfect compliment. This is quick and easy and just a little too addictive. Cinnamon sugar pita chips can be found at Trader Joe’s, and Stacy’s Pita Chips makes them too. If you’d like to make this recipe dairy-free and vegan, try my homemade Vegan Cream Cheese or use a brand like Kite Hill.
