Spreadable Whipped Cream Cheese (for bagels)

Any hoohoo.  This is like  the whipped cream cheese you  can pay extra and buy in the tub. Technically, that is made by a slight different process of cream cheese.

But  hey, this tastes  the same. Is cheaper at that. And it stays soft without weeping in the fridge for at least a week.

I will eventually figure out how long when I stop eating all of it,  but I digress.

Still,  I really am  torqued over rising  prices. I mean, I thought the tubs were expensive before. So you can bet I  am happy to cut costs and get stuff ready to spread. No nuking  of cold cheese to soften. No waiting  forever to warm.

I mean, in the morning, I am sleepy and  hangry and want that cheese on my bagel stat. So I can have it while I have my first sip of coffee. You  do NOT want to see me before coffee. In the pic I have some  bagel thins, which are nice. But there  is a  bagel bakery not too far called Marx here  in Cincinnati. They are the best. Now in second  generation  ownership (owners not related).

I hope you enjoy the five minute investment  of time for the soft cream cheese here. Makes three cups. Which translates to “won’t last long”.

  1. Love this! Dear husband only uses the spreadable and it’s aggravated me to watch the price go up as well.

  2. BAM! I always wanted to have the same consistency of the spread that we buy from bagel shops. adding a little heavy cream makes the difference. Genius! Now that we have this recipe, we will always think of you every morning.
