Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Make sure the cream cheese is softened before beating. This makes it easier to blend with the other ingredients.
  • tip 2
    We like the brilliant red color of the "lite" strawberry preserves, but you can also use regular strawberry or raspberry preserves.
  • tip 3
    Here's a new way to jazz up cheesecake that's so easy. Top with strawberry slices and Betty Crocker® Dessert Decorations chocolate leaves.
