Boursin Cheese

This is a pretty accurate approximation of the commercial product, and a lot cheaper.

1 8-ounce package cream cheese

2 tbsp butter

2 garlic cloves, put through a garlic press, or smashed with blade of knife and minced

1/2 tsp. fresh lemon juice

1 tsp. oregano

1/2 tsp. basil

1/8 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

2 tbsp fresh Italian flat parsley

  1. Combine all ingredients (this may be done in a food processor with a steel blade) and blend thoroughly.  Taste for flavor and seasonings.
  2. The cheese may be shaped into a ball and rolled in crushed pepper or placed on a serving dish and refrigerated overnight before serving.  This cheese may also be frozen but this changes the texture, so you should stir it to smooth it before serving.
