Kraft Kitchens Tips

Size-Wise
Since this indulgent cheesecake makes 16 servings, it is the perfect dessert to serve at your next party.
Substitute
Prepare using PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese.
How to Easily Cut Creamy Desserts
When cutting creamy-textured desserts, such as cheesecake, carefully wipe off the knife blade between cuts with a clean damp towel. This prevents the creamy filling from building up on the blade, ensuring nice clean cuts that leave the filling intact.
