Footnotes

  • Kraft Kitchens Tips
  • Size-Wise: Since this indulgent cheesecake makes 16 servings, it is the perfect dessert to serve at your next party.
  • Substitute: Prepare using PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese.
  • 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.

I wanted a recipe that was classic and easy. I haven't had an easier time making cheesecake. I don't put the topping on because it is great without it. ALWAYS let your cold ingredients come to room temperature before you make cheesecake.

Great! Exactly what I was hoping for-- easy, creamy, delicious. Made four small cakes in my mini cheese cake spring forms. Stirred chocolate chips into one and topped another with strawberries. So good. Made exactly as directed, barring the name brands :).
