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.
