    I tried this recipe but only used 600g of cream cheese instead of the stated 800g as only had 3 200g pks but it worked just as well as it tasted fine as could taste cheese flavour. I made it for a desert for family and they loved it and were very impressed. Very fluffy and the chocolate chip cookie base works well too.

    Where do you purchase double heavy cream? We have just heavy whipping cream in our local stores, Do you know if that would work? I would love to try this.

    1. Hi Angela, yes, Double heavy cream is the same as your heavy whipping cream. Ashleigh is from the UK, so some of the ingredients are called different things, but yes, heavy whipping is good!
