DIRECTIONS

  • Blend the cheese in an electric blender till very smooth.
  • Beat in the sugar, egg yolks, cream & Cognac till the mixture is very smooth & thick. Refrigerate till well-chilled.
  • To Serve: Spoon chilled crema into 4-6 sml dessert bowls, ramekins or goblets. Fresh raspberries or strawberries were suggested as the ideal garnish, but I think a wide variety of imaginative choices would also work well.
