"love this one. delicious cold or from the oven warm. hint: use the cherry can as your mixing bowl and save yourself from washing a dish. use the measuring spoons to spoon the ingredients into the cups. I use one to scrape the cream cheese off the other spoon and then as I smear it into the bottom of the cup shaped dough I use the other spoon the keep the dough in the cup. it tends to move around on you. enjoy and good luck making any that last more than 5 seconds! #kids&husbands #thieves"

"Next time I'll use regular muffin tins -- the mini muffin tins overflowed too much and the cherries slide off. Tasty, but didn't look as presentable as the photo."

"I made these and changed a few things... I won second places in a cook off with these!!!

I used Phyllo Cups insyead of crescents. I added Brie Cheese to cream mixture to cut the sweetness. And I used Fresh Strawberries instead of cherries.
