cream cheese

Hi all you clever cooks!! Can you get cream cheese in Turkey? Or can someone suggest an equivelant to use for the topping of a carrot cake? Many thanks.

Re: cream cheese

Yes, Labne is ok in all cream cheese recipes. I use the full fat one from Bim.

Re: cream cheese

In BIM there is also a cream cheese (in a round tub) but the Labne is best for the carrot cake (and Tiramisu).

Re: cream cheese

I use Mascarpone & Sugar for my Carrot Cake, you can but it in small round pink tubs, but quite pricey (about 11tl) and you need a few tubs. But the best topping ever.

Cream Cheese - Krem Peynir - Available in all supermarkets.

Re: cream cheese

'Krem peynir' is equivalent to cream cheese - it is available in all supermarkets in plastic tubs (next to the labne.)

Bim does a 500g pot (make: Milkten) which is a reasonable price and it is quite a smooth variety.

Happy cooking!!

Re: cream cheese

I find the krem peynir is more like the cheesey triangles, I always use pinar labne - just make sure you get the plain one (blue top), some have garlic!!

Re: cream cheese

Yes I agree with you SJ, Krem Peynir has flavourings etc. I like it on bread or crackers but definately wouldn't use it for cheesecake, cake toppings etc.

Re: cream cheese

you need to make sure you get the Taze Krem Peynir- it is in a rectangular package, usually 200 grams, right alongside the labne. Taze means that it is a fresh cream cheese, and can be interchanged with Philidelphia. Most of the dairy companies make it, and Migros's own brand is very good. Agree with previous poster- what is marked as krem peynir (in the round containers) is NOT cream cheese as we know it- it is long life and very similar to the cheese triangles. Happy baking!
