Cooking Tip: Working with Cream Cheese
When working with Neufchatel or other cream cheese (like Philly…), be sure to work with the cheese at room temperature. Otherwise you’ll be working with a big thick mess!!! If you’re going to be using a blender, put the cheese into the mixing bowl, cut into smaller cubes and then let the cheese sit until it is at room temperature.
Trust me, this makes a world of difference in your recipes!!!
