MY REVIEW

How much cream did you whip?  I don't like to use those "edible oil products".

Sounds delicious. I've never seen neufchatel cheese where I live (don't even know what it is!). What can I use as a substitute?

It's typically labeled "Light Cream Cheese" & found in the dairy section right next to the regular cream cheese.

I halved this recipe thinking I didn't need much for the potluck I was taking it to, but afterwards it was comletely gone. I whipped sweetened heavy cream instead of using cool whip and it was delicious!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 29, 2010

I've made this recipe numerous times, and every time I make it everyone just loves it and can't get enough! It's also very refreshing. When I make it I use reduced fat in the cream cheese and the cool whip.

Thank-you for sharing this one!
