MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 2, 2011

I made these as a Valentine gift for my child's Sunday school teachers. They loved them! I, too, left off the cherries. Instead I added a pecan half to each one before baking. (I had left the pecans out of the batter itself)

Great recipe! The 3 oz. quantity is the correct one. These were quite easy to make. I took them to an event at church and only brought home 2! I'll make them again. I followed the recipe exactly, though did leave the cherries off. Yum!

It is probably 3 oz. as stated. There are 3 oz. packages of cream cheese. If you can't find the 3 oz. size, you could use slightly less then half of an 8 oz. package. I might make these for Valentine's Day.

The ingredients are correct, it is supposed to be 3 oz.

I have not made this yet but it sounds delicious. I am wondering if it is suppose to be 8 oz of cream cheese instead of 8. Does anyone know?
