With relatively high moisture and milkfat content, cream cheese blends and works with loads of different flavors making it an ideal base for spreads and dips. It’s much easier to cut and wrap when it’s chilled. Pro tip: Score the cheese’s plastic or aluminum wrapper with a sharp knife and slice it with wire or fishing line.
We like our cream cheese with just about any beverage. Ones that seem to pair the best with it, however, are ciders, fruit beers and weiss beer. Wines that pair nicely include chianti, chardonnay and riesling.
Where would we be without carrot cake’s sweet and savory cream cheese topper? Or, what if bagels lost their bestest pal? Cream cheese is so mild and spreadable it makes fast friends with many foods especially bagels, wraps, dips, sauces and baked goods
