Have you ever thought of using cream cheese in a dessert ? I mean except for preparations such as cheesecakes ? Here is what I proposed last May at a cheese recipe contest organized for the “Cheese Up Your Life” European program.
As the other food bloggers, I had to prepare 1 tapas and 1 dessert using two cheeses: a traditional French cheese and a modern cheese. The cheeses I had to cook were a pretty heart shape soft cheese called Neufchâtel that I used for the tapas recipe (see the link below) and a cream cheese called Saint Môret (a bit like Philadelpia). I also had many ingredients on hands : fresh fruits, herbs and spices, grocery … and 1h30 to make both recipes.
With this recipe and the Zucchini and Cheese Rolls with Dried Fruits and Nuts I won the French session of the cheese contest.
