One 8-ounce softened package of cream cheese
One 8-ounce can chopped clams - drained and juice reserved
1 mashed garlic clove
1 chopped scallion (white and tender green parts)
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon anchovy paste
Chopped fresh parsley for garnish

In a medium-size bowl, beat together the cream cheese, 2 tablespoons of the reserved clam juice, and the garlic, scallion, mayonnaise, Worcestershire, and anchovy paste until smooth. Fold in the clams, stirring to blend.

*This is a receipe that you can make ahead of time. At this point, cover and refrigerate for at lease 3 and up to 8 hours to let the flavors develop.

Remove the dip from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before serving. If it is a bit stiff, thin it with a little more of the clam juice or some milk, and garnish with parsley.

Makes about 1 1/2 cups.
