Size Wise

Sweets can add enjoyment to a balanced diet, but remember to keep tabs on portions.


Prepare using non-hydrogenated margarine, Philadelphia Light Brick Cream Cheese Spread, light sour cream and light cherry pie filling.

How to Easily Cut Creamy Desserts

When cutting creamy-textured desserts, such as cheesecake, carefully wipe off the knife blade between cuts with a clean damp towel. This prevents the creamy filling from building up on the blade, ensuring nice clean cuts that leave the filling intact.


If baking cheesecake in a dark nonstick 9-inch springform pan, reduce oven temperature to 325°F.
