I am not normally a fan of desserts...I'd generally rather have the main course twice. However, you can add cream cheese to just about anything and I would gladly eat it! This was given to me by a friend at work and has become a go-to recipe when I need something for carry-ins. It's good warm, cold, room temperature, by itself or smothered in a light fruit topping. I want to try it with fat free cream cheese and Splenda but haven't yet. If you do, let me know how it turns out!
