How to Soften Cream Cheese Quickly

This quick tip comes from the folks at Philadelphia Brand Cream Cheese. I hope you find it helpful.

To quickly soften cream cheese all you need to do:

Completely unwrap the cream cheese and remove the wrapper.

Place the cream cheese on a microwaveable plate and microwave for 10 seconds on HIGH or until softened.

Add 15 seconds for each additional 8 ounce brick of cream cheese.
