What Would You Do With 70 Pounds of Cream Cheese?
It’s true. Over 70 pounds of cream cheese unexpectantly came into my life yesterday afternoon. Ever since it arrived I have been wondering…what am I going to do with all of this?!
I decided that with Christmas so close, this must be some kind of blessing. We came across this cream cheese so that I could use it to make treats for our friends and family. I know you can make lots of yummy things with cream cheese…I am just not sure what to do with it. Here are some ideas I came up with:
The first thing I thought of was cheesecake. Unfortunately, I have never made a cheesecake before and I have no idea how to do it. Does anyone have a favorite cheesecake recipe?
For some reason I feel like mixing cream cheese into brownies sounds like a good idea. Maybe it will make them more
creamy and gooey…mmm… Has anyone ever heard of doing this before?
Honestly I’ve never made a cheeseball before either…but I think this would be pretty simple to make. Just mix cheese with the cream cheese, form into a ball, and roll in some finely chopped nuts. I have all of those ingredients! Perhaps I will give a cheeseball to my cheesiest friends…hahaha.
Same as the brownies…my intuition tells me that mixing cream cheese into cookie dough would make the cookies better somehow. Maybe I need to go practice my alchemy in the kitchen? Muah-aha-ha-haha-ahahaaaa!
Oh my word! I can make truffles! Easily at home?! YES! I am so doing that!
Any Other Ideas?
