Crème Fraîche

Crème Fraîche

The secret of great fromage blanc. The Cowgirls enrich their fromage blanc with tangy, thick crème fraîche instead of the usual way, with milk. Pure genius. Plus, crème fraîche, which is expensive in stores, couldn't be simpler to make at home.

This recipe goes with Cowgirl Creamery's Fromage Blanc
