3 Stir the flour into the butter and let it cook, bubbling lightly, for about a minute. Whisk in the milk gradually and add the second half of the lemon pepper.

4 Cook the sauce for about 12 minutes, stirring frequently until it has thickened.

5 Remove from heat and whisk in the cream cheese until it melts.
