Cheesecake is one of the easiest and most delicious desserts that you can make. But as easy as it is to make, it's still quite easy to get wrong. You have to get everything right, and one of the key aspects is the cream cheese - the part of the cheesecake which most people agree is the most delicious. Choosing the right cream cheese for your cheesecake is crucial, but very few recipes online will recommend a specific brand or type to use. We thought it would be useful to round up the best cream cheese to buy so that the next cheesecake you make tastes delicious, let's get into it:
Waitrose Duchy Organic soft cheese
Co-op soft cheese
Paysan Breton Luxurious Cream Cheese
The slightly salted taste of this luxury cream cheese from Paysan Breton actually works surprisingly well for a cheesecake, especially if the topping of your cheesecake is either chocolate or caramel. It's also ideal if you want your cheesecake to have a luxurious feel - this cream cheese is whipped which gives it a very airy and light texture. Plus, there are no additives in this.
