    Manda's Note:

    This is an awesome dessert...reminds me of cherry-topped cheesecake, but MUCH easier to make:) Every time I take this dessert to a party, I ALWAYS get asked for the recipe (I just take a few copies with me/lol). I also like it with blueberry pie filling, but the fam. likes cherry, so that's usually what I use.

      Finally got around to making this and now wish I had gotten around to it sooner! This is sweet and rich and very very good. Tastes like it was alot more work than it was. My kids and grandkids all loved it - we put vanilla ice cream on top! This will be a regular at our house. Thank you for sharing a great recipe!

      Oh YUM!! This is VERY good. It was so easy to make. It's a perfect recipe for making a quick breakfast treat for the family, good enough for your most distinguished guests. I used cherry pie filling this time, and I will try the blueberry next. Hmmm- strawberry? peach? Thank you Manda!!

      When I was making this I was thinking that there was gonna be too much cream cheese. I was wrong. It tasted like 50%danish and 50%cheescake. I didn't have powdered sugar on hand so I just used granulated. I can't decide which tastes better; served slightly warm or completely chilled. Either way I tried it was gooooooooood. Very easy too.
