Sure! For an 8-ounce block of cream cheese, place the completely unwrapped cheese on a microwave-safe plate and microwave it on high for 15 seconds. Add 10 seconds for each additional 8 ounces of cheese.

If some liquid—or whey—seeps out of the cheese while it softens, be sure to add the whey to your recipe along with the solids.
