Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Heat oven to 325°F.
  • Mix crumbs, 1/4 cup sugar and butter. Reserve 1/4 cup crumb mixture; press remaining onto bottom of 13x9-inch pan.
  • Beat Neufchatel and remaining sugar in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add sour cream, zest and juice; mix well. Add egg whites, 1 at a time, mixing on low after each just until blended. Pour over crust; top with reserved crumb mixture.
  • Bake 40 min. or until center is almost set. Cool completely. Refrigerate 4 hours.

Special Equipment Needed

Small Changes Add Up

Small ingredient substitutions, such as PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese, BREAKSTONE'S Reduced Fat or KNUDSEN Light Sour Cream, and using egg whites instead of whole eggs, result in a savings of 60 calories and 7g of fat per serving when compared to a traditional recipe.


For easy cleanup, line pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides of pan. Use foil handles to remove cheesecake from pan before cutting to serve.

How to Help to Prevent Cheesecake from Cracking

Run knife around sides of pan when cake is removed from the oven. This allows the sides and top to settle evenly.
