Boursin Cheese spread

Have you ever eaten Boursin Cheese spread? It is garlicky and yummy and WAY too expensive! This recipe tastes just like it and is quick (not counting softening the cheese and butter) and easy. These crackers are a recent find at Costco. They come in big sheets and they have a bright rosemary flavor to them. This spread would be good on any cracker though, and it is a fabulous topping for baked potatoes too! Fresh herbs can be used instead of dried, just increase each by using 3 T of oregano and 1 T of the others
Boursin Cheese Spread

2 (8 oz packages) cream cheese, softened
1/2 C butter, softened
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp basil
1/4 tsp dill
1/4 tsp chives
1/4 tsp parsley
Beat cream cheese and butter together until well blended. Add remainin ingredients and mix well, scraping bowl as needed. Chill for a couple of hours before serving.
