    This recipe is great. Easy to put together, and so tasty. The cream cheese and butter was a good base. I grated my onions to get most of the onion juice into the recipe. The lemon added that punch and freshness to the whole. Be sure to rinse the canned shrimp before using. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful recipe.

    This was a great appetizer that I made to bring to my sisters. I served it in a bread bowl, with bread pieces, and pita and bagel chips. Everyone dug in and helped themselves, and the bowl was empty when I left! It was a big hit with my family, and I look forward to making and sharing this again and again! Thank you for sharing it with us Appleydapply! Made for Zaar Stars Tag Game 5/09 Linda

    Made for the *Best of 2008* cookbook game as a prize, this is a very tasty & easy quick-fix. I made a half recipe for 2 of us, used minced leek for the onion & added a generous amt of Old Bay Seasoning as a pers pref. My DH started his Easter holiday after work today & welcomed this as a treat to celebrate w/a glass of wine. Thx for sharing the recipe w/us. :-)
