Expert Tips

  • To quickly soften cream cheese, remove from wrapper and place on microwavable plate; microwave uncovered on High about 15 seconds or just until softened.
  • The secret for cutting bars easily is to line pan with heavy-duty or nonstick foil. When it is time to cut bars, just lift by foil out of pan, and cut. This also makes cleanup extra easy.
