How long can cream cheese sit out before it goes bad?

I took the cream cheese out b/c I was going to bake with it and so it needed to come to room temperature. Then 3 hours later I found out that I ran out of eggs so I can't make the recipe I was going to make. Then I put it back in the fridge. Is it still okay to use when I get the egg I need for the recipe?

  • I agree with not the momma if it wasn't a really hot day and the cream cheese didn't melt I would think it would be fine

  • It will be fine. Unless you live in Australia or another area where it is summer.
