Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Cheesecake cutting can be a breeze! Use a wet knife, and wipe it off after each cut for clean, even slices.
  • tip 2
    For Chocolate Chip Marble Cheesecake, stir 1/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips into the cream cheese mixture that is left after reserving 1 cup in step 3.
  • tip 3
    For a fun way to serve this easy dessert, cut the cheesecake into triangles. To make triangles, cut cheesecake into 5 rows by 3 rows, then cut each square diagonally in half to form triangles. Place 2 halves on each individual serving plate. Garnish with edible flowers or fresh berries.
