Anyway I am sure you would love to read about it and make it yourself.
Homemade Cream Cheese Recipe
Milk - 1/2 litre
Curd / Yoghurt - 2 tsp
Lemon Juice - 1 & 1/2 tsp
How to make Cream Cheese at home
In a pan, boil milk. When it boils over, simmer for few mins, then add lemon juice. Cook on high, you will see the whey water separating from milk and leave protein away.
Using a muslin cloth, drain cheese/paneer, remove the water. Hang this in a cloth and let it drain. After 30 mins or so, add curds and beat well.
Again leave the cheese over the counter for the liquid to drain away completely.
After 6- 7 hours you will see thick cheese with all the water drained away.
This can be stored and refrigerated for a week.
When you are using lemon to curdle, run it couple of times over water for the tart taste to leave.
Season with salt and pepper if you are using on biscuits.
This can be used over cakes as frosting. However I felt since this is more of a homemade process, this suits best as dips for biscuits.
