a soft unripened cheese that belongs to the cream cheese family. It
comes from Switzerland and Italy and is a thick, buttery-rich, sweet and
velvety, ivory-colored cheese produced from cow's milk that has the
texture of clotted or sour cream. It is normally sold in plastic 8 ounce

can be used instead.
