|Cream cheese stencilled with spices.|
You can use any cream cheese for this, provided that it comes in a block firm enough to be stencilled. I used Lancewood's Superior Cream Cheese; if you can't find this, use Philadelphia Cream Cheese. Any combination of your favourite spices will do, as long as they are ground finely enough to create even coverage: I used a slightly darker blend of spices on the edges of the cheese. Ask for henna stencils at your local Asian market or spice shop, or order them online.
I imagine these stencils would be lovely to use, with cinnamon, on top of an unbaked cheesecake.
I served this with salty crackers, crunchy little gherkins and some sweet chilli sauce. Print Friendly
