Christmas may be over, but the gift-giving certainly isn’t.
Today is one of my roommate’s 21st birthday, so in addition to a present, I am preparing one of her favorite foods: boursin cheese.
OK, so it isn’t really “cheese” per se. And despite the use of fresh herbs, it’s far from healthy. But that’s not going to stop us from enjoying it, is it?
1 8oz. package cream cheese, softened
1 stick butter, softened
1 large clove garlic
1 tsp white wine
1 pinch salt and white pepper
2 tsp chopped fresh parsley
½ tsp chopped fresh thyme
1 tsp chopped fresh basil
1 tsp parsley
¼ tsp thyme
½ tsp basil
In a large bowl, mash the butter with a fork until completely softened. Add the cream cheese and continue to mash.
Chop the garlic and add it, as well as the wine and seasonings to the cream cheese mixture. Stir until thoroughly mashed. Serve with crackers.
