Recipe by Chef John
"We're going to use plain old yogurt, a little bit of salt, and a lot of time to make an easy and incredibly delicious homemade cheese. I found some sheeps' milk yogurt at the farmers' market, but I've done this with regular cows' milk yogurt and it works beautifully. The taste is more flavorful and tangier than regular cream cheese."

Yum! Used 2% greek yoghurt, added minced garlic and chopped chives with the salt. Fantastic on French bread straight out of the oven.
