“This was made by Naomi Crisante on James Reeson's Alive and Cooking. I did a savoury version using a herb and garlic cream cheese. It was also suggested you could do a sweet version using fruit filled cheeses. These creams cheeses come in 200 gram round packs in Australia and for this recipe a South Cape brand of Savoury Cream Cheese was used. Suggested you serve with a tomato salsa.”
