How to Make Cream Cheese Dip Step by Step
Beat the Cream Cheese: Use a hand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment to beat 12 ounces of room-temperature cream cheese. Whisk until smooth.
Add the Herbs: Set the mixer to low speed and slowly add 1 cup of heavy cream until well incorporated. Add 3 tablespoons of minced green onion, 2 tablespoons of minced fresh dill, 1 tablespoon of minced fresh chives, 1 tablespoon of lemon zest, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 1 teaspoon of salt, ½ teaspoon of ground black pepper, and ⅛ teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes. Whisk until the mixture thickens and firms.
Strain and Chill: Line a 6-inch mesh strainer or sieve with two layers of cheesecloth. Pour the cream cheese mixture into the cloth, press slightly, and smooth the top. Fold any excess cheesecloth over the top of the cream cheese mixture. Place the mesh strainer over a small bowl to catch liquid that will drain through the cheesecloth. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight or up to 3 days.
Invert and Serve: When ready to serve, invert the cream onto a serving plate and discard the drained liquid. Serve with crackers or fresh vegetables.
