Moist, sticky and filled with rich maple flavor, this treat tastes as delicious as it looks. The gooey cream cheese inside is sure to get mouths watering. —Doreen Wright-Laukaitis, Oxford, Massachusetts

    We preferred it without the cream cheese; I like it with added raisons. But the recipe is easy and fast...and very good.

    Ate this over the weekend at my father-in-law's house. So good! And the house smells awesome while it's baking.
