How to Soften Cream Cheese
Place completely unwrapped package of cream cheese in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 15 sec. or just until softened. Add 15 sec. for each additional package of cream cheese.
For easy cleanup, line pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Use foil handles to remove chilled cheesecake from pan before cutting to serve.
