Cream cheese 8 Ounce

Grated parmesan cheese 3/4 Cup (12 tbs)



1. Bring cream cheese and butter to room temp.

3. Cube or cut cream cheese and butter into bits.

4. Place cream cheese and butter in a saucepan on low heat.

5. Add the milk when the cream cheese and butter starts to melt. Keep stirring for 5 mins.

6. Then add the Parmesan cheese in. Stir until smooth.
