French Style Cheese Spread

While we lived in France, we of course came to love all of the delicious french cheese available to us. One style we particularly loved was their soft cheese spread. Paired with chips or a typical baguette, this was an appetizer that was easy and irresistible. Now that we are back living in the states, this is a french style treat that I frequently try to recreate here on our farm. Lets just stay, it never lasts longer than a few minutes because it always gets devoured very quickly. 

8 oz package of cream cheese, softened at room temperature
1/4 cup butter, softened at room temperature
1/2 tsp beau monde seasoning 
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 tsp herbs de provence (order ours HERE
1/4 tsp dried lavender (order ours HERE
1 tsp water
1 tsp fresh parsley
1/4 tsp red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp worcestershire sauce

Beat all ingredients with an electric mixer and pack into a container. Refrigerate for at least 12 hours. Bring back to room temprature before serving. This is excellent on anything! Use your imagination and use this in any recipes requiring a soft cheese, or even just use as a dip for pita chips. Its up to you, but whatever you decide, you will be happy with it.
