Not a bagel topper you can buy in the store, but a perfect one to make at home when delicious ripe cherries are in season.

Ingredients

2 cups fresh cherries
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon honey
1 lemon, zest only
Pinch of salt
Bagels

Directions

1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Wash cherries well and spread out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with a small pinch of kosher salt.

2) Roast cherries for 20 minutes until bursting. Remove and let cool.

3) Mix together softened cream cheese, lemon zest, and honey.

4) Chop cherries in half when cool, removing pits. Fold cherries into the cream cheese mixture. Serve over toasted bagels.

Leftover spread will keep great in the fridge for 5-7 days.
