This rich and creamy dessert is especially nice for company. It's attractive and easy to serve, and much of it can be made ahead of time. The citrus flavor is refreshing after a full-course meal.

"I thought it looked wrong too but looked again and it only calls for 3 oz packages. The cream cheese in my frig now is 8 oz."

"Is the amount of cream cheese correct here? Sounds like a pkg of cream cheese for each serving."
