"I love cream cheese and I love blueberries so I couldn't wait to try this recipe. It's even better than it sounds! A dollop of whipped cream on top and I would call this dessert. Yummy!!"

"Fabulous, special occasion breakfast! I cut the amount of the cream cheese and maple syrup for the filling in half, as the recipe makes much more filling than needed, and spread the bread with the preserves, so I probably used more than 2 Tablespoons, everything else was according to the recipe. A very special treat...delicious!"
