    • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 1 1/2 cups chopped scallions (about 6 large)
    • 12 ears corn, kernels cut from cobs
    • 2/3 cup heavy cream
    • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
    • 1 large garlic clove
    • 6 ounces queso fresco or mild feta, crumbled (1 1/3 cups)
    • 1 cup cilantro sprigs
