3 bay leaves

1/2 cup butter (or one stick), cut into chunks

2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Parmesan

1/2 cup heavy cream

Salt and freshly ground white pepper

Stir in heavy cream, season with salt and white pepper, then beat until creamy using an electric beater. Transfer to serving dish and garnish with chopped chives.
