Kraft Kitchen Tips!
How to Soften Cream Cheese
Place completely unwrapped package of cream cheese in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 15 sec. or just until softened. Add 15 sec. for each additional package of cream cheese.
For easy cleanup, line pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Use foil handles to remove chilled cheesecake from pan before cutting to serve.
Size Wise
Enjoy a serving of this rich and indulgent treat on special occasions.
Healthy Living
Good news!! You'll save 50 calories and 7 g of total fat, including 4 g saturated fat, per serving by preparing with Philadelphia Light Brick Cream Cheese, light sour cream and 4 egg whites.
How to Help to Prevent Cheesecake from Cracking
Run knife around sides of pan immediately after removing baked cheesecake from oven. This allows the sides and top of cheesecake to settle evenly as it cools.
Food Facts
One medium lemon yields about 3 Tbsp. juice. Bring lemons to room temperature before squeezing to get the most juice from each lemon.
