Recipe by Mrs. Flick

This is a recipe my sister gave me about 10 years ago and I have used it for Thanksgiving ever since. It was from a Philadelphia Cream Cheese package. There are 2 Topping options, pick whichever one suits your taste-both are good. I use the marshmallow creme and egg white topping when serving to guests with nut allergies, other wise I like to use topping #2.
