  • Heat oven to 325°F.

  • Bake 12 min. or until lightly browned. Meanwhile, beat cream cheese and 3/4 cup of the remaining sugar in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended.
  • Pour cream cheese mixture over crust. Bake 55 min. or until center is almost set. Run knife around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim.
  • Refrigerate cheesecake 4 hours. Meanwhile, cover rimmed baking sheet with foil, then sheet of parchment. Place remaining matzo sheet on prepared baking sheet.
  • Bring remaining 1/4 cup each butter and sugar to boil in small saucepan on medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir 1 min. Pour over matzo; spread until matzo is completely covered with sugar glaze. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup nuts. Bake 10 min.; cool completely.
  • Break matzo sheet into pieces as shown in photo; place on cheesecake just before serving.

Special Equipment Needed


Margarine works well for the crust, but the almond toffee only works with butter.


Prepare using PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese.


If any of the sugar glaze or nuts slide off the matzo sheet while it is baking, carefully use a knife to scrape the glaze or nuts off the baking sheet to return it to the matzo sheet.
