Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Healthy Living
Save 70 calories and 8g of fat, including 4g of sat fat, per serving by preparing with PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese, BREAKSTONE'S Reduced Fat or KNUDSEN Light Sour Cream, and egg whites instead of whole eggs.
Tip 2
Shortcut
For easy cleanup, line pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides of pan. Use foil handles to remove chilled cheesecake from pan before cutting to serve.
Tip 3
How to Help Prevent the Cheesecake from Cracking
Run knife around sides of pan immediately after removing baked cheesecake from the oven. This allows the sides and top to settle evenly and prevent top of cheesecake from cracking.
