EASY-PEASY BOURSIN CHEESE

Homemade, easy-peasy Boursin Cheese

I cam across THIS recipe for homemade Boursin cheese, and wanted to give it a try before the holiday get-togethers started.
A trial run, if you will!
So....Last Sunday when we had most of the kids over was my test.

Oh. My. Word.
So delicious!
So easy.

The ONLY changes I made to the original recipe was to cut the butter down.
I actually doubled the recipe for our family, so the doubled recipe called for 2 sticks of butter and I used 1 1/2.

I happened to have some homemade fromage blanc cheese I had made from some of our extra raw milk the week before, so this made it uber-tasty!
The original calls for cream cheese, which is available to anyone, so there is NO excuse!

I also used 2 HUGE cloves of garlic, which gave it QUITE the garlic bite.
Fine for me, but you might want to re-think the huge thing, and just go for regular sized garlic.
This would be a perfect veggie dip, as well as a sandwich spread, or a dip for crackers.


It is well with my soul.....

Just thought you should know that I'm lurking on your page, haha!
I'm listening to your playlist while my little guy takes a nap. You & your little Alex are still heavy on my heart. God has used your Grandson to cultivate a richer spirit of gratitude in me and for that I'm...well, grateful!
I struggle so much with 'living in the moment' and I have been known to worry worry worry. I want to give my son what you gave Alex, a life that was filled with joy, love & TRUST. Your story reminds me that he needs to see a Mother who rejoices and trusts her God, no matter the circumstance. I want to display that graceful confidence.
Sorry for the novella :-)
I hope you're having a nice night.
Best wishes,
Morgan

p.s. I think you should call this "Easy-Peasy Boursin Cheesey" because I'm a dork like that.
