Weekend Recipe - Company Cream Cheese Butter

This is a crowd-pleaser that makes a fresh loaf of bread into a marvelous experience.  So grab a great French or Italian loaf and serve this with a bottle of Pinot Grigio.

I made this version with fresh parsley and dried chives.

Company Cream Cheese Butter

2 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 Tbls. butter, softened
1 tsp. dry white wine or lemon juice
¼ tsp. black pepper
½ tsp. cumin powder
1 ½ tsp. chives or garlic chives (1 Tbls. fresh if you have it)
1 ½ tsp. parsley (1/2 Tbls. fresh if you have it)

In a small ceramic bowl, cream together the cream cheese and butter.  Stir in wine or lemon juice.  Add herbs and seasonings.  Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours, then bring to room temperature before serving.

I actually made this for a party taking a short cut of using 1 Tbls of Olive Oil Dipping Sauce Blend instead of the chives and parsley.  It was perfect with the Pinot.


  1. It was darn tasty during the Super Bowl, although I was not drinking wine with it then!) Marcy
