- 1/3 cup butter or margarine melted
- 3 pkgs GF cream cheese

- Bake at 300°F for 90-110 min until set but center still jiggles a little bit. Turn off heat, leave oven door closed and let cake cool in oven for 1 hour. Remove and run knife around sides of pan (so cake won’t crack as it cools) and allow to cool completely on counter. Cover surface with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 4 hours.
