Cream cheese is a soft, usually mild-tasting fresh cheese made from milk and cream. It is not naturally matured and has to be consumed fresh. Its taste and texture is comparable to Boursin and mascarpone.
Cream cheese is often spread on bread, bagels, crackers, and used as a dip for potato chips and in salads. Cream cheese can also be used to make cheesecake, to thicken sauces and make them creamy. It is sometimes used in place of or with butter (typically two parts cream cheese to one part butter) when making cakes or cookies, and cream cheese frosting. It is the main ingredient in the filling of crab rangoon, a popular appetizer in American Chinese restaurants.
