To suit my own agenda (aka taste preferences), I swapped the traditional chervil for fresh basil and parsley.

I also used Worcestershire sauce instead of anchovies (just like I did in my favorite homemade Caesar salad dressing). I wrapped things up with some more classic choices: garlic, fresh lemon juice, salt, and pepper.

Everything goes right into a food processor or high-speed blender. Just blend until smooth, and you’re done!

Although the garlic will get processed into the mix, I like to mince the garlic first so there are no surprising large chunks in the final cream cheese.

Also, be sure to taste your spread before you add salt and pepper. Cream cheese can easily become over salted, so tread lightly!
