Sweets can add enjoyment to a balanced diet, but remember to keep tabs on portions.
Blending Cream Cheese
When blending cream cheese in dessert recipes, make sure the cream cheese and sugar are completely blended, free of lumps and smooth before adding any other ingredients. If the cream cheese is too cold, it will not blend easily. To easily soften cream cheese, place a completely unwrapped package of cream cheese in a microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 15 sec. or until softened. Add 15 sec. for each additional package of cream cheese.
