    Kim D.'s Note:

    This simple recipe comes from Kit Wohl's new Arnaud's Restaurant Cookbook, but was printed in my local newspaper. I can't wait to give it a try! --NOTE-- Cooking time is actually standing time.

    1. 1
      Dissolve the rennet tablets in 1/2 cup warm (NOT HOT) water; stir until dissolved.
    2. 2
      In a large glass or stainless steel bowl, combine the skim milk, buttermilk and rennet mixture; Stir.
    3. 3
      Cover bowl with plastic wrap.
    4. 4
      Let stand at room temperature for 24 to 36 hours or until the mixture separates into curds and whey.
    5. 5
      The large white curds will sink to the bottom of the container while the watery, whey rises to the top.
    6. 6
      Line a colander with 2 slightly dampened layers of cheesecloth, letting 2 inches hang over the edge of the colander.
    7. 7
      Place the colander over a large bowl. Slowly pour in the curds and whey. The whey will drain off; discard it or, if you are feeling ambitious, you can use it to make ricotta or as a substitute for water or milk when you are baking.
    8. 8
      Leave the curds, covered and refrigerated, to continue draining and solidifying for another 24 hours or so before using.
    9. 9
      Fresh homemade cream cheese lasts about 1 week in the refrigerator.
    10. 10
      ~NOTE~ Central Market and Whole Foods both carry tablets of rennet, an enzyme that makes milk coagulate.
