Cream Cheese

Can I freeze cream cheese?

Cream cheese can be frozen, but the texture changes when it thaws. Instead a rich, decadent creamy consistency, it gets dry and crumbly.

This means that frozen cream cheese should be reserved for dips and baked goods while fresh cream cheese is best for frostings and slathering on bagels.
