Cream Cheese Schmear

The famous package might say Philadelphia, but cream cheese was actually invented in New York. Its silky texture and subtle tang make it the perfect topping for bagels,of course, and also a great base for dessert icings. I love to "schmear" it on
Red Velvet-Milk Chocolate Brownies.
