    Hey Jude's Note:

    I like to keep a container of this in my fridge during the holidays, when I inevitably have unexpected guests. It keeps for a week and is quick and easy to make. Adapted from a Sunset cookbook.

      I am reviewing this without stars for I do not know what went wrong as when I made it and put it in the fridge it was fine and tasted really good but when I took it out 24 hours later and left on the table for the 30 minutes it had gone to a liquid mix, the only thing I can think of is I did use a very low fat cream cheese and a smooth ricotta cheese otherwise made exactly as per recipe. UPDATE tried serving it straight out of the refrigerator (divided it into 2 pots and served the second once the first was finished) and all was eaten up with crackers, thank you Hey Jude in the end it turned out great.
