Expert Tips

We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the original.

When tested with fat-free cream cheese, the cheesecakes had poor texture and bland flavor. If you try fat-free cream cheese, we suggest using 4 oz fat-free cream cheese and 8 oz 1/3-less-fat cream cheese for best results.

If fudge topping is too thick to spread, place in small microwavable bowl and microwave on High for 15 to 30 seconds or until spreadable.

Cheesecake freezes beautifully! Wrap airtight and freeze up to 5 months. Thaw in the original wrapping in the fridge 2 to 4 hours.
