What Does Garlic And Chive Cream Cheese Taste Like? Cream cheese is often used as a filling or topping for sweet baked goods. Though cream cheese works hand-in-hand with desserts, it also works tremendously well in savory settings. Because cream cheese is a base with a mild flavor, it supports and elevates the flavors of added ingredients once combined. In this case, adding fresh garlic and chives instantly boosts the taste, bringing out the slightly sweet notes in the cream cheese to balance the more savory aspects of the garlic and chives. It has an oniony taste, but it’s an enjoyable flavor and not too overpowering — great for garlic and onion fans. Tools You Need To Make Garlic And Chive Flavored Cream Cheese: Measuring cups and spoons Mixing bowl Spatula How To Crush Garlic Crushing garlic is an important skill every baker and chef should get familiar with. Place your knife flush against the garlic clove and carefully whack the knife against it. This should initially separate the skin from the clove. To crush it, place your knife over the garlic again and smash. How To Mince Chives Mincing refers to a fine chop using a food processor or a knife. This technique allows the maximum amount of flavor to come out of the vegetable, making it perfect for this recipe to bring out all those onion flavors. I recommend cutting off about ¼ inch from the tips of your chives to make them even and begin slicing them as thin as possible. Use a sharp knife to avoid slippage while mincing. Alternatively, some people use kitchen sheers to snip chives. How To Store Garlic And Chive Cream Cheese To store your flavored cream cheese, refrigerate it in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Gemma’s Pro Chef Tips For Making The Best Garlic And Chive Cream Cheese: Replace the chives with any fresh green herbs that you wish. They will all taste good. Make sure the cream cheese is softened, or it won’t whip up smoothly. Full-fat cream cheese makes for the best-textured results. You can double this recipe for a crowd.
