I haven't tried it yet, but I trust these folks completely. It's from The America's Test Kitchen Cookbook. They said NOT to use lowfat or skim milk. I guess it's the least we can do for their not asking for half-and-half for dipping. Obviously, it's good served with maple syrup, but they also suggest serving with just a pat of butter and a sprinkle of confectioner's sugar. (Yeah....pass that syrup.) This recipe differs from other recipes in that it has a pure cream cheese filling with no fruits or chocolate added in. Might be best for picky eaters.
