What is cream cheese? (1 Viewer)

Here are a few facts about Cream Cheese or Philadelphia.


Cream cheese is a soft white cheese made from milk and cream; it is generally found in most supermarkets and is also known as Philadelphia.

When baking always opt for the original or full-fat versions as I like to call them and try and get the block/brick shaped versions if you can, if not the tubs are fine.

Cream cheese and cream cheese spreadable are the same product; the only difference being is that the spreadable version has been whipped incorporating air into it thus making it lighter/softer and easier to spread.

Cream cheese is the main ingredient in making cheesecake and should always be stored in the fridge until ready to use.
