They are expensive and it seems to me just softened cream cheese would work just as well. i did have a coupon-I won't buy anything new without a coupon- so I bought some and use a bit to tone down the acidity in a shrimp and tomato sauce pasta dish. DH is getting older and says anything tomato is fighting him all night so I made the recipe, serve the rest of the family, added a bit of the cooking cream to hs portion and he was very pleased.

have you used the cooking cream? What do you think?

I used it once, because like you, I had a coupon. It worked well in a pasta dish but no better than the cream cheese plus a few additional ingredients that I usually use.

I guess it is a time saver, but in my opinion it is overpriced. Probably won't buy it again unless I get another good coupon.

I tried it instead of cream cheese for a recipe I made the first time with the real cream cheese. MUCH worse than the real stuff. Not as creamy or tasty. won't buy it again.

I had never heard of it. Since no one bothered to identify the product I'm wondering if this is what people meant?

Philadelphia Original Flavor Cooking Creme | Kraft Philly

It comes in a variety of flavors and seems worth a try. I've never had anything bad marked Kraft Philadelphia.

I tried it twice (did not use a coupon but I don't care) first time I made it it was creamy and tasty. next time I made it I used 2 lbs of pasta because I had company over, within minutes of stirring in the cooking cream it started to clump up and the pasta was so dry I had to add Heavy cream to the dish. Mind you they were selling a larger container than the average size so I figured It would be good for 2 lbs of pasta. I won't be buying again, I make a better alfredo sauce homemade that's creamier. A bechamel sauce works great too and is easy to make. Don't waste your money on this stuff.

Don't waste your money; I tried it when it first came out, also because I had a coupon. I threw it out, it was gross. I make my own cream cheese sauces, so that was what I was comparing it to. One more thing- they are also ridiculously overpriced..... Stick to homemade

I had a coupon for a free container, so I tried it a few months ago. Nothing to write home about - can make your own for a lot cheaper.

I saw it in the local Grocery Outlet store for $1 a tub two weeks ago. I bought some, since it was the same price as plain cream cheese

I've never used it but the thing (although pricey) that DOES work and taste better than cream cheese when cooking with it is Boursin cheese.

I tried it when it first came out because I had a coupon and it was on sale. Not impressed enough to ever buy it again.
