Total Time



1 (12 ounce) block feta cheese

2 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature

1/2 cup sour cream or Greek yogurt

1 lemon, zested and juiced

Kosher salt, to taste

Black pepper, to taste

1/4 cup honey

Pinch chili flakes

4-5 sprigs fresh thyme


In the bowl of a food processor, process feta, cream cheese, and sour cream until light and airy, about 2 minutes. Add lemon zest and juice, and season, to taste with salt and pepper (it may not need any salt, taste it first!).

Make the hot honey. Heat honey in a small pot over low heat. Add chili flakes and thyme. Turn off heat and let sit 5 minutes. Transfer feta to a serving bowl. Drizzle warm honey over whipped feta and serve immediately.
