How to Soften Cream Cheese

Place completely unwrapped package of cream cheese in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 15 seconds or just until softened. Add 15 seconds for each additional package of cream cheese.


If you have an immersion blender, you can use that instead of the regular blender to blend the cooked date mixture.
