To lower the fat content of recipes calling for cream cheese, look for reduced-fat versions in the supermarket's dairy section. Neufchâtel, known as the "cream cheese" of Switzerland and France, is also a good alternative. It's a soft, white unripened cheese that's good in desserts, dips, sauces and spreads. Though sometimes considered a lighter form of cream cheese, Neufchâtel is a variety all its own. American Neufchâtel contains less fat and more moisture than the European type. Find Neufchâtel in the dairy section along with the cream cheese.
