Soooo good. The first time I made it my husband and I ate the whole thing. It was our meal for the evening. Everywhere I take it, it is a hit. I love it warm with crackers. Brings out the flavors.

This is lovely! I used butter, and savory instead of tarragon with just a hint of sage. I did put in the cheese as I have some chevre to use up, but it wasn't really noticeable, except perhaps in the texture, which was smooth and spreadable. Really delicious - we like this a lot.
