This is straight for Kraft:Family & Foods magazine. It is very similar to another recipe posted here on the zaar, with a few changes. It is yummy and will not last least they don't in this house.

Great recipe! My DH isn't much on sweets, but he loved it as well. It's perfect as a dessert or for brunch with a cup of coffee. I followed the directions exactly and wouldn't change anything. I would suggest storing the leftovers covered, and in the refrigerator, because of the cream cheese. Thank you SkinnyMinnie for posting this wondeful recipe!
