What else can you do with this ingredient? We recommend spiking it with ½ cup melted chocolate or clover honey for a tasty twist on regular cheesecake filling. You can also use it as an easy pastry cream filling for cannolis or cream puffs. Just fold in extra whipped cream to make an authentic pastry cream. Also, top your custard pies and layer cakes with frothy peaks of cheesecake frosting.
