Ingredients

  • 1

    pint of heavy cream

  • 1

    stick of butter

  • 2

    tablespoons. cream cheese

  • 1/2-3/4

    cups Parmesan cheese

  • 1

    teaspooon garlic powder

Directions

In a saucepan combine butter, heavy cream, and cream cheese. Simmer this until all is melted, and mixed well. Add the Parmesan cheese and garlic powder - whisk to combine. Simmer this for 15 to 20 minutes on low, being careful not to burn the bottom. You may wish to season with a little salt and pepper, but I usually don't. I have done this with half-and-half, but we prefer the heavy cream. I wouldn’t try it with plain milk. I use the Parmesan cheese in the green can. The fresh seems too salty.
