  1. HEAT oven to 350ºF.

  3. BEAT Neufchatel and granulated sugar with mixer until well blended. Add eggs and 2 Tbsp. flour; mix well. Blend in 1 Tbsp. zest, juice and baking powder; pour over crust.

Kraft Kitchens tips:

Substitute 1 Tbsp. each lemon, lime and orange zest for the 3 Tbsp. lemon zest.

For a softer crust, reduce the crust baking time from 15 min. to 5 min.

You should get about 1 Tbsp. zest and 2 Tbsp. juice from 1 lemon.
