You must be wondering what makes this cream cheese extra special? Sure, anyone can open up a package of cream cheese and simply spread it onto a bagel. When you simply spread a cream cheese out of a package you may get a thick hard to spread cheese. Cream cheese spread is something completely different.

Zabar’s cream cheese spread is packed full of flavor and it is light and fluffy. The cream cheese spread that is light and fluffy helps any toppings you want to add taste even better. Sour cream and seasonings are added to this cream cheese spread to make it taste even better.

At Zabar’s you can get their cream cheese spreads in three flavors: plain, scallion, and vegetable. You can easily turn this recipe into the scallion type by adding a couple of tablespoons of sliced scallions to the cream cheese spread.
