Learning how to make cream cheese from scratch is easy.  You may add fresh herbs and really blow your family away; it's outstanding.

Cream cheese is wonderful in savory dishes and desserts.  I love cheesecake and dips, so I use cream cheese often.

How to Make Cream Cheese

For tangier cream cheese with less fat, use yogurt in place of cream and buttermilk.


2 cups heavy cream
2 TBS buttermilk
kosher salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper to taste (optional)

Combine the heavy cream with the buttermilk, then suspend the mixture in a clean piece of cloth over a bowl for 24 hours or until the cream thickens.

The longer you keep it suspended, the drier the cheese will be. Season with salt and any herbs to taste. For tangy cream cheese with less fat, use yogurt in place of the cream and buttermilk.
