Made this as the second of two contributions I shared at a small neighborhood potluck ~ In my book, pumpkin is always delicious, & when paired with cream cheese, absolutely wonderful! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's Pick A Chef event]
This is truly incredible... I actually made mine lowfat and, with a few other changes, created a new recipe that I posted here, #495038. But this recipe is amazing if you are going to use cream cheese. Thanks so much for posting; this made my day!
