  • 8 ounces (1 package) Philadelphia Cream Cheese Spread, softened
  • 1/2 cup pesto

  • 4 or 5 basil leaves, diced

Special Equipment:


  1. Place the cream cheese in a large bowl and beat until smooth. Add the pesto and beat until thoroughly combined.
  2. Fit the piping tip on your piping bag, if using. Spoon the mixture into the piping bag or sandwich baggie. Pipe a dab of the cream cheese mixture onto each tomato half.
