Brought this to work for a potluck luncheon. "Oohs" and "ahhs" and moans of approval could be heard around the room. If you closed your eyes and just listened to the sounds, you'd think something nasty was going on!! This should be nominated in the dessert "Hall of Fame"'s that good!

Decadent. If you love rich cream cheese desserts, this one is for you. It has been a favorite around this family for years. Thanks for reminding me of this dish. I'll have to make it again.

I just made this last night and wanted to add that it is best if cooled completely. If it is too warm the 2 layers seem to run together and you don't get the same effect. It remonds me of a lemon bar, with the crust and the curd filling.
