How to Make Baked Philly Cheesecake
- Put the cream cheese into a large mixing bowl & set out for about an hour. (You don't really need a bowl this large, but the deeper, the better since the filling likes to fly around the kitchen when you mix it up.) When the time is up, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Top with fruit and/or whipped cream, if desired.
