Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

In a medium bowl, add the cream cheese, dill, lemon juice, garlic powder, and black pepper to a medium bowl. Mix until combined. (You can also use a hand mixer here if you prefer or want a whipped cream cheese).

Step 2

Use on bagels, sandwiches, or veggies.

Tips

  • Use high quality cream cheese. Obviously, I use organic cream cheese. But, if you're trying to make a fancy cream cheese spread like you'd get at a bagel shop, then make sure you're buying a good quality cream cheese so you get great flavor. My favorite is Organic Valley.
  • Use dried dill weed, not fresh. The dried dill weed has more flavor and it will keep better if you store this in the fridge for a week or so while you use it.
  • As it's Meyer lemon season right now, you can use regular lemon juice or Meyer lemon juice for this recipe – whatever you have on hand. The flavor will change a little bit depending which lemon you use, but that's part of the fun as you can make this cream cheese a little different by just switching up the lemon.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge so it doesn't dry out. A tip is just keep your cream cheese container, mix this all up in a bowl, and you can put it right back into the cream cheese container.
