SUBSTITUTE Prepare as directed, 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.
