Kraft Kitchens Tips

Size-Wise
Sweets can add enjoyment to a balanced diet, but remember to keep an eye on portions.
How to Bake in Springform Pan
Heat oven to 325ºF if using 9-inch springform pan (or to 300ºF if using a dark nonstick 9-inch springform pan). Prepare batter as directed; pour into pan. Bake 1 hour 10 min. or until center is almost set. Run knife around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim.
Variation
Prepare as directed, omitting the 3 Tbsp. sugar used to prepare the crust and substituting 20 finely crushed OREO Cookies for the graham crumbs.
