Do you have any unique cream cheese recipes?

Asked by KNOWITALL (23864points) 1 month ago

I’m going on month six of Stay At Home and to break the monotony, I’ve been cooking special things and giving them away.

If you have any unique recipes for cream cheese, I’d love to hear them.

Last week’s foray was cheesecake supreme with duck eggs, topped with toffee and chocolate bits. This weekend I’m considering chocolate chip and lemon cookies, with cream cheese, which makes them soft batch.

Cheese cake. Mix cream cheese with a container of whipping cream and a hint of lemon juice and zest. Put over a package of gram crumbs, and top with a container of canned cherries pie filling. No need to heat. Put in the refrigerator for a day.

Tweek for taste. Like using different pie fillings and lime instead.

@RedDeerGuy1 Interesting, thank you! I do love lime more than lemon.

I heard someone else mention something similar with fruit yogurt mixed with whip cream, put in pie filling, top with fruit, for an easy no bake summer pie.

Cream cheese covered with habanero apple jelly, slice pieces of cream cheese off and put on Ritz crackers.

Equal parts of cream cheese, sour cream and Mayo (8 ounces each) add a package Knorr® Vegetable recipe mix and 8 oz can of water chestnuts, drained and chopped fine. Finely chopped green onion optional three or four. Mix and rest in frig for two hours mix again before serving. Chips of your choice.

My husband makes a sauce with cream cheese, sour cream, and roasted red peppers. Roast them, and peal off the skin. He blends the three ingredients together with a hand held blender I think. He puts the sauce over chicken. I don’t like it because I don’t like cream cheese. Serve with rice.

@JLeslie That actually sounds amazing to me. Just steamed rice?

@Tropical I always forget the cheeseball, thanks. Love water chestnuts. I do a tortilla rollup with green chiles, lawrys, green onion and shredded cheddar that’s pretty popular.

@KNOWITALL Usually, I make the rice with salt, a little garlic and a little oil, typical “Cuban” rice, but you could certainly use plain steamed rice. We keep frozen Japanese sticky rice in the house, and sometimes my husband just uses that for convenience. That’s all just a matter of taste.

Cream cheese makes mashed potatoes go from good to awesome.

@JLeslie I’ll look up Cuban rice, thanks.
We have a Kapok rice cooker that’s amazing.

@KNOWITALL Was it plain white rice? Cuban rice online might be one of anything. It could be Spanish rice, rice and beans, yellow rice, rice that’s typical for arroz con pollo. That’s why I put Cuban in parenthesis.

@JLeslie The only thing the online Cuban rice recipes have in common is using long grain rice haha!

It’s all good, I’ll do the chicken with some of my jasmine and see how it goes. I’m more worried about my husband tasting the sour cream, as he hates it, but if I don’t tell him, perhaps I can slip it in.

Jasmine rice is awesome. A lot of Latin Americans use Jasmine or Basmati because it is nice and fluffy. :)
