“I got this recipe from our local newspaper. It sounds like it would be a great dessert for holiday entertaining. Not a lot of work to this recipe and I think it would be an elegant and easy dessert for a dinner party too. How can anything with cream cheese be BAD! I have not made this recipe, but am going to try it soon. Cook time includes chill time.”
