Kraft Kitchens Tips

Size Wise
The flavor profile of a favorite sweet potato side dish is captured in this irresistible cheesecake that makes enough to feed a crowd.
How to Soften Cream Cheese
Place completely unwrapped packages of cream cheese on microwaveable plate. Microwave on HIGH 15 to 20 sec. or just until slightly softened.
How to Bake Cheesecake in Springform Pan
Substitute 9-inch springform pan for the 13x9-inch pan. No need to line pan with foil. Prepare recipe as directed, increasing the baking time to 1 hour 20 min. to 1 hour 30 min. or until center of cheesecake is almost set. Run knife around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool 10 min. Top cheesecake with marshmallows; continue as directed. Remove rim of pan before serving cheesecake.
