Can Creme Fraiche substitute for cream cheese?

roxlet | Jun 16, 2009 08:56 AM

I want to make a cookie recipe (lemon cheesecake tassies) and it calls for cream cheese. I happen to have a ton on creme fraiche left over from a couple of weeks ago, and was wondering if I could use it in place of the cream cheese. If not, does anyone have any cookie/brownie/mini cakes recipes that use creme fraiche? I'm making a lot of small desserts for a BBQ on Saturday, and I'd love to find a way to incorporate ithe creme fraiche before it goes bad...
