Other Cream Cheese Usage
Cream cheese is typically used in savory snacks of various types (for example, as a spread on bread, bagels, crackers, various types of raw vegetables, etc.), and can be used in cheesecakes and salads.
It can also be used to make cheese sauces.
It can be a base to some spreads, such as yogurt-cream cheese topping for graham crackers, (10 oz cream cheese, and 1 cup yogurt, whipped.).
It is sometimes used in place of butter (or alongside butter in a ratio of two parts cream cheese to one part butter) when making cakes or cookies,
and it is also used to make cream cheese icing, which is similar to buttercream icing, (using a ratio of two parts cream cheese to one part butter) which is used to ice carrot cake.
It is the main ingredient in crab rangoon, an appetizer commonly served at American Chinese restaurants.
It can also be used instead of butter or olive oil in mashed potatoes to create a creamy taste.
