This garlic lemon herb cream cheese recipe is so much better than store bought and it comes together in 5 minutes!. Softened cream cheese mixed with garlic, lemon zest and a combination of fresh herbs all perfectly balanced with the creaminess of the cheese.
Room temperature cream cheese is a must! If you're rushed on time, you can microwave the cream cheese for 30-45 seconds.
Any herb and garlic cream cheese combination works beautifully! Lemon zest is optional for an extra tang.
If you're looking for inspiration, try adding basil pesto with sun dried tomatoes and scallions.
The herb cream cheese can keep for up to 2 weeks.
