Choose Anchor cream cheese as the ideal dessert ingredient

This article is sponsored content brought to you by Fonterra.

From cheesecakes to lemon tarts, tiramisu to clafoutis, or as frosting atop red velvet cake—cream cheese is a terrifically versatile ingredient and a key component of many popular dessert recipes.

In addition to its use in traditional favourites, you can also use cream cheese to add a contemporary twist to muffins, cookies, scones or banana bread —it truly is one of those ingredients whose only limit is that of the chef’s imagination.

And to ensure that the quality of your desserts meets the demanding expectations of your customers, be sure to choose a quality cream cheese—like Anchor Cream Cheese from Fonterra Foodservice, which has been specially developed to meet the stringent requirements of the foodservice market.

“Anchor Cream Cheese boasts a deliciously mild flavour, making it ideal for a wide range of both sweet and savoury applications,” says Alastair McCausland from Fonterra’s Foodservice Team. “While it has a smooth, creamy texture, it also delivers the firmness you need to ensure that dishes which utilise it as an ingredient present as well as they taste.”

Anchor Cream Cheese’s firmness provides it with excellent ‘holding power’ which means that when you’re using it to make a cheesecake it consistently delivers the required level of performance.

While Anchor Cream Cheese’s smoothness and ability to blend beautifully with other ingredients makes it the natural choice for numerous dessert recipes, its versatility means it is equally suitable for savoury as well as sweet dishes.

“It goes without saying that Anchor Cream Cheese is ideal for desserts, but in fact its flavour profile and texture has been carefully developed for ‘universal’ application,” Alastair explains. So if you find you have some Anchor Cream Cheese left over, use it as a spread, savoury filling, or combine it with other ingredients to create dips, sauces or other dishes.
