The cream cheese that you spread on bagels, cream on your pancakes or pasta, or smother on a pizza just might be the best part of that food.
How To Make the Cream Cheese Soft
If you’re having a hard time softening cream cheese, try these steps:
Microwave Cream Cheese in Rectangle Shape
When this is done, it may be easier to mold into other shapes, like the heart shape. Choose a glass baking dish that is 2 inches larger than the portion of the cream cheese. Place the dish on a microwave safe plate. Microwave at medium power for 1 minute. Turn the dish, and microwave for another 1 minute. Turn off, and let the dish stand for 10 minutes. The cream cheese will be soft and ready to use. Enjoy!
Soften 2 Cups of Cream Cheese With Microwave
How to soften 2 cups of cream cheese in the microwave; that’s what we are going to do today. In order to soften the cream cheese, you need to heat it in the microwave for a few minutes. The best microwave to use is the ovenproof container that you already have at home. You can also use the jar you use to store cream cheese, or a microwave-safe container. Now, you want to heat the cream cheese until it is melted and smooth. It may take a couple of minutes depending on how warm your oven is. If the cream cheese gets too warm, you want to use the “defrost” setting on your microwave. But you do not want to turn the microwave on in the middle of cooking. The reason for this is because the cream cheese will continue to cook from the hot air circulating around it. And if you do turn it on, the cream cheese will start to melt unevenly. If the cream cheese isn’t smooth enough, you can always use a hand mixer or whisk to mix it a little more.
Microwave 2 Tablespoons of Cream Cheese
If you want to soften cream cheese without it getting too warm, you should heat it in the microwave. To do this, simply put the entire 2 tablespoons of cream cheese into a microwavable bowl, add a little water, and then microwave the bowl for 30 seconds. The cream cheese will be soft enough to spread easily.
