Boursin Cheese Spread

When we are asked to help plan spring & summer ‪‎picnics‬ and other family ‪‎gatherings‬, One of our most requested appetizers is our Boursin Cheese‬ Spread. This delicious treat is not for those of you watching your cholesterol, so the trick is to not over-indulge, and just eat a small amount of it. Its a perfect compliment to ham or prosciutto, and delicious served on a toasted baguette, pita chips or crackers. You and your guests will love it!
This Recipe makes about 1 1/2 cups, and takes 2-3 days of 'aging' for the flavors to blend.
8 oz cream cheese softened,
1/2 cup butter softened,
1 TBS lemon juice or white wine,
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce,
1/2 tsp dry or dijon mustard,
1 TBS parsley, finely minced,
1 TBS fresh chives, minced,
1/2 tsp dried tarragon,
1 garlic clove finely minced,
1/4 tsp dill weed,
Dash of freshly ground black pepper.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mash together with a fork until blended. 
Then, stir with a spoon until well mixed. 
Place in refrigerator, in a crock or airtight container, for 3 days. 
When ready to serve, bring to room temperature. Will keep up to 2 weeks refrigerated, if it lasts that long! 

Enjoy!
