Let's Make It
Heat oven to 325°F.
Mix bread crumbs and butter; press onto bottom of 9-inch springform pan. Bake 10 min.
Beat Neufchatel in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended. Stir in remaining ingredients. Pour over crust.
Bake 1 hour or until center is almost set. Run knife around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool completely before removing rim. Refrigerate cheesecake 4 hours. Let stand 15 min. at room temperature before serving.
Serve with assorted cut-up fresh vegetables and pita chips.
If using a silver 9-inch springform pan bake at 325°F. Reduce temperature to 300°F if using a dark nonstick 9-inch springform pan.
How to Soften Neufchatel
Place completely unwrapped packages of Neufchatel in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 15 to 20 sec. or until slightly softened.
