You can reduce the fat in your recipes that call for cream cheese, sour cream or cottage cheese by using low or fat free versions. Many times I will use half non-fat and half low-fat rather than strictly non-fat. Be sure to mix them gently because the lower fat versions do separate more easily than their fatty counterparts. Don't use whipped products, because they contain too much air, and will ruin baked products.
