12 ounces Montrachet or other soft mild chevre, broken into pieces
1/4 cup heavy or whipping cream
3 bunches (about 12 stems each) chives, finely snipped
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
In a food processor, add chevre and process, while adding the cream, until smooth. Scrape into a mixing bowl. Whisk in the chives, thyme, pepper, lemon juice and zest. Refrigerate several hours to allow flavors to blend.
