I used the shortcut tip from Kraft and this turned out great! I did cut the cream cheese in chunks, but it was getting so difficult to deal with after it started to thaw from the freezer, that I "cheated" and used the shortcut. It turned out perfect! I added a little lemon juice to it, instead of just the peel and it gave it the best flavor. Served it with garlic and rosemary toasts, and my guests devoured it. Would definitely make again!
Helpful preparation hints:
1.)Cream cheese needs to be COLD. Throw it in the freezer just before cutting and put back in freezer after cutting (as you prepare the other ingredients). Also, use Neufatel cream cheese to save serious calories so you can eat more dip.
2.) For truly right-sized bites, cut cream cheese block in half (thick-wise) before slicing & cubing. Heck, slice into columns and use your fingers to make pull-apart bites!
3.) Grate lemon zest instead of making with lemon peel. Lemon peel is too...weird.
4.) Save some money and don't buy fresh rosemary. Instead, serve with Rosemary and Olive Oil Triscuits.
