baker's cheese


A soft cream cheese made with cow's milk. It has a smooth, even white paste and is rindless, being packaged in polythene-lined tins for sale. It is made from pasteurised, skimmed milk and is used by bakers for making pastries and cheesecakes in North America. It contains 19% fat (dry), 0.2% fat (total). The curds are uncooked and unpressed. It is reminiscent of a fine-grained cottage cheese only more sour.
