All I can say about this recipe is Yummy! Here is what BJGourmet says about it...

"If you love herbed-cheese spreads such as the "Alouette" and "Boursin" brands (which are whipped to contain air for volume) and tend to be expensive, you'll enjoy this recipe.

I lived in Paris for 10 years, and this clone is a dead-ringer of the original "Boursin". It's delicious served with crackers, as a filling for celery sticks, as a topping for your baked potatoes, and slathered on crusty French bread. Perfect for hostess gifts and holiday entertaining.

Please use unsalted butter (not margarine), and either "Hellman's" or "Kraft" mayonnaise (the generic brands aren't as thick)."

BJ's Boursin Cheese

16 oz cream cheese, room temperature

1/4 c unsalted butter, room temperature

1/2 c Hellman's or Kraft mayonnaise

The juice of 1 whole lemon

4 cloves garlic, crushed

1/2 c diced yellow onion

1/2 tsp dried thyme

1/2 tsp dried chervil

1/2 tsp dried tarragon

2 tbsp dried parsley

Place the cream cheese, butter, mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic and onion in food processor. Process on high until you can see that the diced onion is no longer visible and completely incorporated into a smooth paste.

Scrape down the sides; add the dried herbs. Cover and process about another 30 seconds until you can see the herbs are thoroughly combined, yet still visible as tiny green flecks. Transfer to an airtight container and store refrigerated.
