I think this recipe is from a Canadian Living magazine, but I have changed it a little. The recipe calls for 2 - 250g packages of cream cheese, but I use 1 and only 1/2 the other because I don't like the cream cheese layer so thick. I also don't add the nuts because they seem to go soft in a day or two.
