Apple Pie Spread

I have not tried this recipe, but when my son says it is "good", it is "GOOD"!  So therefore, here it is for us all to try.  Enjoy.  It looks and sounds delicious.  I have to amend this sentence.  I made up a dish full a couple of days ago and it is indeed delicious and addictive.  I am on the third day and I think it gets better every day.  I would let it set for a couple of hours in the frig to firm up though, which also enhances the taste.  I used regular cream cheese and cinnamon as that is what I had on hand.  I would really like you to comment on your reaction if you try it.
