- n. A soft white cheese made of cream and milk.
Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A kind of soft rich cheese prepared from curd made with new or unskimmed milk and an added quantity of cream, the curd being placed in a cloth and allowed to drain without pressure; also, any cheese made with an extra proportion of cream. From its cloying richness and delicacy, the term cream-cheese has been variously used in ridicule of extreme fastidiousness of taste, overwrought elegance of language or manner, and the like: as, the Rev. Mr. Creamcheese; there is more cream-cheese than bread in the fare that he sets before his readers. See
- n. countable and uncountable A soft, mild-tasting, white cheese that comes from cows milk.
