I used mascarpone cheese instead of regular cream cheese (because that's what I had on hand), and used a bit more than 2 tsp fresh orange zest, and was very pleased with the results. The orange flavor is wonderful. I had a Halloween theme in mind when I made this recipe, but they would be good any time of year.
