Don't we all love having a container of this in the refrigerator. I find it a little pricy at the grocery. Homemade is always fresher and tastier anyway, not to mention more economical. Spread on your bagel chips that you just made, or a cracker, add some to a simple white sauce to pour over roasted chicken breast. Blanch snow peas or sugar snaps and pipe boursin inside or on top. I guess one of my favorite ways is, take a spoon and have a bite anytime you open the refrigerator.

makes about 1 1/2 cups
print recipe

4 ounces butter, softened
8 ounces cream cheese softened
1 1/2 tablespoons finely grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
1 small garlic clove, finely minced
1/4 teaspoons EACH
dried oregano
dried basil
dill weed
dried marjoram
dried thyme
black pepper

Mix together cheeses and garlic. In another small bowl mix all dried herbs and pepper. Don't forget to rub the herbs between your fingers as to add to the cheese mixture to release their flavors. Blend all together. Spoon into a 1 1/2-2-cup container. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
