12 Recipes for Cream Cheese Lovers

From 2020, Cream Cheese Danish

It's a classic for a reason. Cream cheese danishes are one of my all-time favorite foods. Have you heard my cream cheese danish story? You're about to if you read the post. 

From 2016, Mom's Italian Cream Cake

This was the cake my mom made most often. She made it for out-of-town company, for dinner parties, for birthdays - we ate it a lot. And it was good. 

From 2020, Chocolate Coffee Cheesecake

You can't have an homage to cream cheese without a cheesecake recipe. This is my current favorite. This cheesecake is rich but light and fluffy, and it's covered in a glossy chocolate ganache.

From 2016, Cream Cheese Coffeecake Cookies

Soft, pillowy cookies covered in a brown sugar-cinnamon streusel. These cookies got rave reviews at my husband's office.

From 2018, Carrot Bundt Cake with Salted Caramel Cream Cheese Frosting

Let me say that again...SALTED CARAMEL CREAM CHEESE FROSTING. The end.

From 2014, Kahlua Cheesecake Brownies

Thick, rich, decadent, fudgy, creamy. Oh so GOOD. Like, dreamy good

From the 1980s (and 2009), Cream Cheese Triangles

This post is worth clicking just for the 1980s homecoming photo. These little cream cheese triangles are always THE hit of brunch! Plus, they're a make-ahead. You're going to love them! 

From 2012, Key Lime-Filled Coconut Cupcakes

Ooh-la-la...this flavor combination is everything! The cream cheese frosting is, well, the icing on the cake! 

From 2016, Neiman Marcus Cake

Neiman Marcus Cake

This recipe makes TWO cakes! The chocolate cake itself looks like a brownie, but it's not. It's lighter and fluffy. The cream cheese layer is rich but not too thick, as Goldilocks would say, "just right."

From 2021, Cinnamon Roll Biscuit Cake

Cinnamon rolls in any form need a cream cheese frosting. I don't make the rules, people; I just live by them. This Cinnamon Roll Biscuit Cake is no exception - make it for breakfast this weekend!

coconut cream cake with cream cheese icing

One of the best bundts in all the land! It's soft and moist, with a crispy edge, and just full of lovely coconut flavor. It's the cream cheese icing, though, that sends it into the stratosphere.

Sometimes, you just want a killer cream cheese for your bagel. Here you go, friends.
