"I make birthday Cakes for the girls in the office. This months birthday girl is on a diet so in lieu of a cake I made these. They are very easy and delicious. I kept the by the door in the office--every time someone went to the restroom they left with one of these in hand. Next time i would use 8oz cream cheese & 8oz sour cream. This recipe is a keeper."
