Homemade Cheese Spread With Garlic and Herbs
I have an abundance of chives in my garden. What a perfect way to use some of them. This is great spread on a pizza crust, making a white sauce.Yield: 1 cup
|8 ounces||cream cheese, softened|
|2 tablespoons||unsalted butter, softened|
|1||small garlic clove, quartered|
|1/4 teaspoon||kosher salt|
|1/4 cup||chopped parsley leaves|
|1 tablespoon||chopped chives|
|cracker or toasts (for serving)|
Combine cream cheese, butter, garlic, and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until smooth. Add parsley and chives and pulse a few times until well combined. Pack mixture into a small bowl, ramekin, or glass jar. Cover and chill at least 30 minutes. Serve with crackers or toasts.
Cheese can be made 5 days ahead. Cover and chill.
