    flower7's Note:

    From The Soup Mix Gourmet, by Diane Phillips. This savory cream cheese spread will remind you of Boursin and is great to spread on crackers, toasted bagels, or French bread slices. Also good in mashed potatoes or as a topping for a baked potato. I didn't have fines herbes so instead used 1/4 tsp each parsley, tarragon, basil & oregano. Cook time is chilling time.

      Made this today for our appy before dinner. It makes quite a bit so I took one log over to the neighbors and kept one for us. (Before I rolled them I took a sample...love it!) I can just imagine what it will be like after sitting in the fridge for a while. Thank you for posting and I will be making this for Christmas and New Year's. Made for Fall Pick a Chef tag game. P.S. I used your measurements for the fine herbs which worked out perfectly!
