Garlicky Cheese Spread (leftover recipe)

Yield about 1 cup

1 medium onion, chopped
3 medium garlic cloves, minced
50 ml white wine
75 ml heavy whipping cream
3-4 oz (about 100 gram) cream cheese or homemade yogurt cheese
1/4 teaspoon ground anise
Salt, ground black and cayenne peppers to taste

In a medium saute pan, add wine and heat over medium heat. Add onions and sprinkle with salt. Cook the onions until soft and the pan starts to dry out- about 5 minutes. Add garlic, whipping cream and continue to saute for more 3-5 minutes. Sprinkle with black and cayenne peppers to the end. 

Place cream cheese, ground anise and onion mixture to the medium container and puree everything with immersion mixer. Check for spice and adjust if you need.

Place in refrigerator for a couple hours before serving. Serve on a toast with some other flavorings. I like with fresh lemon zest and a couple drops of honey.
