Green Olive and Cream Cheese Spread
Featured Pinch Tips Video
- 1 pkg
- (8 oz) cream cheese or neufchatel, room temperature
- 3 oz
- (about half a jar) gr olives, drained - save juice - rough chopped
- 2-3 oz
- (2-3 tbsp) saved olive juice, more or less to taste
1Whip the cream cheese, with electric mixer, until smooth.
2Add the olive juice a tablespoon at a time, mixing well after each addition. You want the cream cheese smooth, easy to spread, but not runny, so you may not use all of the reserved juice.
3Stir in olives. If you can, allow to stand for 15-20 minutes for flavors to blend. Serve with crackers (I like triskets)
