This was yummy! I served this for brunch with my son's playgroup, and everyone loved it! Even my husband couldn't resist grabbing a piece on his way to work. I did make a few changes: I only used 1 package of cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar in the filling, spread some strawberry jam on top of the cream cheese, and added some fresh strawberries (since they're in season right now). I also cut down on the sugar for the topping, using only 1/4 cup, with 1/4 cup butter. I did find that the top layer felt too soft after baking for 35 minutes, so I left it in for another 10 minutes, and it came out perfect! Thanks for this super easy recipe!

We're having our annual office 'goodie day' today and I wanted something not so sweet to go along with the cookies and candies. Made these omitting the sugar and cinnamon. Subbed a finely chopped jalapeno, two green onions, 3/4 t cumin 1/2 t cayenne and 1/2 t garlic salt in the cream cheese. Used about 1/4 c of melted margarine over the top. I cut a small corner to taste and I think these will be a hit. Already planning on making them for Christmas Eve. Thanks for a great and versatile recipe!!!

This recipe is fantastic! A huge hit with everyone! My girlfriends and I always gather the opening weekend of deer season and make a big chili dinner for the guys. While we are waiting for the guys to return we always bake cookies and desserts and have a good time. We made this recipe (doubled) as is and then made a second batch (also doubled) and added chocolate chips. I had three pieces left on the plate when we were cleaning up. There are so many options, we even talked about doing it southwestern style omitting the cinn/sugar and adding salsa or jalapenos. The options are endless! Thanks so much for sharing this great recipe!
