Made this for Thanksgiving. My guests all *loved* it. I was reaching for my water glass a couple of times, because the horseradish was a little strong. So if you are sensitive, add a little at a time til you hit your "taste" just to be sure.

I tested this out for my family's Christmas dinner and it came out great. I agree that the cream seems to cancel out the horseradish's spiciness, and it never seemed overwhelming at any point. My daughter sensed spicy right away and wouldn't touch it. I'm confident most of my family will love this.
