preparation

faux-boursin-4232.jpg 1.  Place the cream cheese, goat cheese, butter and garlic in the jar of a food processor and process until smooth. It’s important to make sure the garlic is completely blended in.

2.  Then add the thyme, oregano, rosemary, if you’re using it, and the black pepper and pulse until incorporated. Add the parsley last, and only pulse until is evenly distributed. If you over process the cheese with the parsley, your cheese will become green, which is only good for St. Patrick’s Day.

3.  Line a small bowl or other mold with plastic wrap.

4.  Add the cheese and smooth the top. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

5.  To serve, unmold the cheese by placing it upside down on your serving platter and let it come to room temperature.

6.  Then remove the plastic and smooth out any wrinkles with a knife blade. This spreadable cheese is really good on bread and plain crackers.
