These were fantastic! We all loved them. They're much better than the ones I used to get at Starbucks. After my frenzy of Christmas baking, all I had left was lower fat Neufchatel cheese, so I had to use it. And it still turned out perfect (and I didn't add any extra sugar or other sweetener). I know I'll make these again, because they're so good. And I'll feel confident that using the lower fat cream cheese will still mean these will turn out just as good if I had used regular cream cheese. Thanks, Nancy's Pantry. This is a real "keeper"!
