Yes, definitely. As the other posters have mentioned, it will be best used for cooking once you've frozen it. According to stilltasty, it will keep at least a couple of months frozen:

Our son and girlfriend freeze sometimes for use in a garden salad. It's quite good.

I've noticed a texture change after I've frozen and thawed cream cheese, but I still use it on my bagels. The flavor isn't affected by freezing.

I suppose one could slightly improve the texture by running the cream cheese through a food processor, but I'v never bothered.

And according to a savvy friend,three months is the "freezer life" of cream cheese.

No please don't. It really messes up the flavor and consistency. I have tried it many times and it doesn't work.

Well, I freeze Cream Cheese all the time. It's something I buy extra of when its on sale, and freeze it. No problems with it that we have noticed.

Absolutely. First, remove it from the original wrapper and then use your handy vacuum sealer to seal it before putting it in the freezer. Let it thaw in the fridge for a few days before using it.

I want to make this pie a few days ahead. It will be a cranberry cream cheese pie. It will not have whipped cream in it. It will have a cranberry topping made with previously frozen cranberries. The topping will be similar to sauce, but thickened with cornstarch.

Can I freeze it after it is made? The cream cheese I will use has not been frozen.

Please advise.

I'm going on vacation and I forgot to use up a brick of cream cheese. Can it be frozen?

Yes you can. However, the texture is not the same when thawed and is best used in making cheesecake and the like I have found. (09/20/2007)

Yes, you can totally freeze a brick of cream cheese. I do it all the time, it's not good for spreading afterward though, since it's crumbly like cottage cheese (it does not make it runny). I only use it in baking desserts, etc. (10/06/2007)
