Boursin Cheese (Homemade)

This recipe is from Home of the Home Cook.  

2 garlic cloves
8 ounces butter, at room temperature
16 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese (the real stuff, and freshly-grated)
1 tablespoon fresh dill, minced or 1 teaspoon dried dill weed, crumbled
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon chives
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme, crumbled
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

  1. Have cheeses and butter at room temperature.
  2. Crush garlic.
  3. Mix cheeses, butter and garlic.
  4. Add remaining ingredients, mix well.
  5. Pack into a container just large enough to hold the boursin and store in refrigerator for a few hours before serving.
  6. To serve, bring to room temperature.
  7. Serve with crackers.
  8. Cover and refrigerate for at least a few hours before serving.

No cream cheese for me so I used a well drained block of fat-free yogurt cheese (my own drained for 24 hours). Skipped the butter as well. The flavors were just like the real thing and more than offset the loss of fat.
I served it with freshly baked whole wheat French bread and a salad, delicious.
