Add 3 eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended; pour into prepared pan. Place in larger pan on oven rack. Pour hot water into larger pan to come halfway up sides of square pan.
Bake 40 to 45 min. or until center is almost set. Remove pan from water bath; cool on wire rack 30 min. Refrigerate 3 hours.
