“I've loved these since I first tried them a couple of decades ago. In more recent years I've used a combination of 1/2 cottage cheese and 1/2 cream cheese for a creamier filling. Time does not include time for chilling sauce. I have on occasion let the blueberry sauce cool only slightly and served warm; I like it better chilled, though--it's thicker.”
