MY REVIEW

"This is wonderful! Liked by even the pickiest dessert person. I make this according to directions and always turns out excellent. It is one of those desserts that gives the impression that it was difficult but it takes very little time to assemble. Great warm, cool or cold. Once they are cold they cut very nicely into squares or triangles. Looks pretty on a dessert table. Try this today!"

"I think I'll try this with the pumpkin cream cheese spread that I found for a great fall treat."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 15, 2009

"This is to die for. I've made a similar recipe, which tasted the same as this one, and I've not met anyone who wouldn't give a body part to have more of this! Be sure to eat it when it's still warm & have some vanilla ice cream on the side. The other recipe is called Sopapilla Cheesecake, but it has a lot more butter & sugar & an egg. This one was just as good as the one I have but without as much fat. It's still not an every day food & definitely not a breakfast item that would be a good start to a day...although it's really hard to NOT have it for breakfast when you have it available."
