"This is the cheese filling I use for several different sweet breads and it tastes like cheesecake. Everyone loves it. Can be used to fill kolachkes, braids or even dropped in the center of chocolate cupcakes -- yummy but loaded with calories. " — POKEY-TURTLE

Great stuff! I used this to fill dark chocolate cup cakes! Mix in chocolate chips and it's great to swirl into brownies for cheesecake brownies. You can even add it to muffins! The possibilities are endless....
Very tasty. I put it in devils food cake cupcakes. I wasn't sure if I had to add it to the middle of the cake batter or just drop it on top, so I did both. The stuff on top sunk to the middle & it worked great. Very easy!
I had lost my grandmother's recipe for a similar filling from what I remember this seems very close to her's. I am using it to make kolacky for Easter. By the way kolacky is spelled the way I wrote it. I still have my family recipe for that from Poland.
EXCELLENT! I used this recipe to spread on the dough of "Sweet Dinner Rolls". They were the best ever! UPDATE--This is the filling I used for the Pull-Apart Easter Blossom Bread. So Yummy!!
This is great for pastries and just to dip fruit in. Also great spread on cinnamon graham crackers!
Oh thank you Audrey! I've been searching for a cream cheese filling recipe since I had some fabulous cream cheese hamantashen in Pittsburgh, now I can make some at home!!
just as the recipe claims, this is a very versatile filling. I use it any time I have left-over cream cheese in the fridge.
Awesome! Taste just like cheese danish filling!
