How to Soften Cream Cheese
Place completely unwrapped package of cream cheese on microwaveable plate. Microwave on HIGH 15 to 20 sec. or until slightly softened.
If you don't have a tart pan, use a plastic wrap-lined 9-inch round cake pan instead. Prepare as directed, pressing wafer crumb mixture onto bottom and 1 inch up side of pan. Use plastic wrap to remove tart from pan before cutting to serve.
