INGREDIENTS

This is VERY important: the cream cheese, eggs and butter should be at room temperature. You could leave them in the counter over night or at least for about 4 hours...

Warming up the butter and cream cheese in the microwave won't work :/ Patience and preparation is key :)

Preheat oven at 350oF
