Have a bit of leftover cream cheese from a recipe? Don't let it go to waste! A few ounces adds creaminess to dips, entrées, and even desserts. We typically recommend 1/3-less-fat cream cheese over full-fat. You still get all the rich body and creaminess of the luxurious cheese without the calories and fat. Be sure to wrap up your extra cream cheese with plastic wrap to keep air from drying out the cheese. Use up any leftovers within a week of opening for best taste and texture results.
