I think that this recipe is something you'll either love or not love. I found the spread to be really rich (mostly because of the full block of cream cheese in it) and a little too much for a sandwich spread. I do think it would be great on crackers, as an appetizer. I served mine on Kaiser rolls instead of the croissants. I probably won't make it again, just because it was too much. I wanted a few bites of it, but it got to be a little overwhelming after that.
