I love this recipe and everywhere I take it they eat every bite of them. They are super easy and I even made them once without the top crust and just put the cinnamon and sugar on top and they were great. I have even made them and put cherries on top and that was good too. Thanks for posting so that I will always know where to find the recipe.

I made this as the dessert for a holiday party I had for my friends. Those who tried it liked it a lot. I made it with cream cheese with strawberry jam swirls.
