Bakers cheese is a term that covers all unripened soft cheeses. Low-medium fat soft cheeses with a tangy flavor are good for baking because it retains a moist texture. Other unripened cheeses include varieties such as Quark, fromage blanc and skimmed milk soft cheese which are good for reducing the fat content in recipes that require cream. Cottage cheese is a lumpier form of soft cheese with a mild fresh taste. Ricotta cheese is a Italian cheese that bakes well and adds a creamy nuttiness. Cream cheese adds a very creamy texture to dishes.
