Since he was a very little boy, JT has loved white cheese on a cracker. What he calls white cheese is actually boursin, a creamy soft cheese, usually flavored with garlic and spices. At the grocery store a cup of it will run you $4 or $5. I don't know about y'all, but that's a bit too costly for me to pick up on a regular basis. My version is easy to make and inexpensive. On top of that, it tastes terrific. Try it and I promise that you will never buy the the store version again.
When I make it, I serve it with crackers or crusty french bread. It's a guaranteed crowd pleaser.
1 brick of cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1 clove of garlic, finely minced
1 tablespoon each dried oregano and dried basil
1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
1 tablespoon half and half
Place all the ingredients in a bowl.
