Top Review by Ms B.

Very, very good dip. I used regular cream cheese and about one and a half heads of garlic. Goat cheese isn't available at my local (rural), this recipe had to wait for an out of town shopping trip. Goat cheese will permanently be on that shopping list now. Thanks for posting. ***UPDATE*** I prepared this recipe and spread it on spinach tortillas which were then rolled up and sliced for appetizer pinwheels. There wasn't a single one left on the plate at the end of the evening. Everyone loved them. :)
