  • 1 8-ounce package cream cheese softened
  • 1 teaspoon onion grated
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 teaspoon brown mustard
  • 1 cup pecans chopped


  • Peel a small onion and grate with a cheese grater to get 1 teaspoon of very finely grated onion. It will almost be pureed. This texture is important so it mixes well with the cream cheese without creating any chunks of onion.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, grated onion, garlic powder, and 1 teaspoon of the Worcestershire sauce. Scoop onto a sheet of plastic wrap and form into a disk. Wrap tightly with the plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator. Chill for 2 hours or over night to allow the flavors to meld. After chilling the cream cheese, unwrap it and place on a serving plate.
  • In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat, then add the brown sugar, brown mustard, and the remaining 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until the sugar is melted and the sauce is smooth.
  • Add the pecans to the sauce and stir to coat.
  • Pour the pecan mixture over the cream cheese disk and serve immediately with crackers.
