Did You Know...Softening cream cheese is easy! Just microwave cream cheese without the wrapper on High for 15 to 20 seconds.

Substitution: Rise to the occasion! If using self-rising flour, there is no need to add salt.

Success: To ensure recipe success, do not use vegetable oil spreads.

How-To: Be a cut above the rest! Cut cheesecake bars with a wet knife, wiping it clean after each cut.
