Blending Cream Cheese
When blending cream cheese in dessert recipes, make sure the cream cheese and sugar are completely blended, free of lumps and smooth before adding any other ingredients. If the cream cheese is too cold, it will not blend easily. To easily soften cream cheese, place a completely unwrapped package of cream cheese in a microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 15 sec. or until softened. Add 15 sec. for each additional package of cream cheese.
How to Freeze Baked Cheesecakes
You can freeze baked PHILADELPHIA cheesecakes for up to two months and still enjoy the rich, creamy taste. Prepare cheesecake as directed; omit topping. Cool completely. Wrap cheesecake securely in plastic wrap then with foil. Freeze for up to 2 months. Thaw wrapped cheesecake in refrigerator overnight. Garnish with toppings and serve.
