While the original Laughing Cow is the best one-on-one substitute for cream cheese, the Laughing Cow brand has, over the past century, branched out into offering a number of different flavors. One of their newer ones is something that readily adapts to dessert-type applications: a strawberry-flavored cream cheese spread. Spark People has a small-batch recipe (enough to frost two cupcakes, the developer says) calling for two wedges of this cheese mixed with powdered sugar and vanilla.
Food and fitness blog Run Eat Repeat has a frosting recipe that’s a little more out there — this one makes use of Laughing Cow Swiss-style cheese wedges (no, they don’t have holes). The recipe calls for two wedges of this cheese along with a teaspoon and a half of brown sugar, a heavy dash of cinnamon, and a not-so-heavy dash of salt. The directions simply say: “Mix. Microwave. Put on everything,” but the blogger says they themselves used it on a batch of apple muffins.
Laughing Cow’s current lineup of cheese wedges includes flavors such as garlic and herb, white cheddar, pepper jack, asiago, and cheddar bacon, none of which seems to lend itself well to topping cakes or muffins (via Laughing Cow). One thing you could do with these, however, is to use them to “frost” a batch of biscuits or cheese scones or even make a filling for savory cookies.
