This is my contribution to the Book & Cook Holiday Blog Festival.
This recipe is easy to make and serves 12 if you can keep people from grabbing seconds before everyone is served (not easy). The combinations of crunchy crust and smooth toppings and sweet fillings with the tart cream cheese makes it taste as heavenly as it looks. My picture here does not do it justice. If you want to make it look really special, you can add curled chocolate shavings on top.
