Sweet Herbed Cheese

4 ounces butter, softened
12 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 orange
2-3 Tbs honey
1/4 cup coarsely chopped nuts
2 Tbs finely chopped fresh ginger
3-4 Tbs finely chopped fresh rose geranium leaves


Beat butter in a small mixer or with rubber spatula until smooth. Add cream cheese, mixing well. Combine with remaining ingredients, mixing until smooth.

Serve with fruit or as a filling or accompaniment for simple cakes and sweet breads.

Note: Other sweet herbs such as spearmint, orange mint, lemon verbena or lemon balm would be excellent with the rose geranium.
