hello aunty yochana!

was just wondering if you knew any cheaper alternatives other than philadelphia cheese to use in cheesecakes? cos i am trying to learn how to bake cheesecakes and want to experiment without it being too costly.

thanks and happy new year!

hi lily,

other than philidelphia, there's anchor. it could be slightly cheaper but not very much cheaper.
There's another brand called "Lactos" but it comes in 2 kg. pack.
