This is an incredibly easy cream cheese & garlic dip that I first tasted about fifty years ago and have been eating and making ever since. Neighbors of my parents made this and brought it to a New Year's Eve Party my folks gave and this recipe has been passed on to one and all who have had it. You can serve it as prepared or get creative and add different ingredients to suit your own tastes. I routinely add chives either fresh or freeze dried depending what I have on hand and I have sliced up stuffed green olives and that was good as well, a little salty but it had a good taste. The other nice thing with this recipe is you can double, triple, etc. using as much or as little garlic as you like. It is best served with rippled or dipping potato chips or even veggies. I have found that the lite brand cream cheeses are not as good to use in this recipe with the taste and consistency defintely affected. Try it, you'll like it.
