REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
This was spot-on, the most accurate copy of this awesome spread from Clearman's. The lemon juice is essential to give it that tart flavor. Please don't EVER use margarine, it is absolutely horrible for you and so unnatural. Use real butter, organic butter if you can -- it just tastes so much better. If you find it's hard to spread, take it out of the fridge, get it to room temperature, and give it a good spread. This is out of this world when making grilled cheese... use a blend of pepperjack/gruyere or goat-milk cheddear and prepare to have your world rocked!

I don't believe this is the original from the North woods Inn. Doesn't taste the same, lacks creamy texture, which can be achieved by added a little mayo to the spread.

The cheese spread I buy from Vons is hard as a rock, therefore does not spread very well. I remember the cheese spread as being very creamy. What's up.

Too heavy on the lemon juice. I'd just add the 2 teaspoons and omit the 3 tablespoons called for.
