    I changed the cook time on this recipe after making it again. I needed about 13 minutes in my oven. Also, there will be leftover cream cheese mix. I add a little Cool Whip to it and use it to dip fruit or graham crackers in for a quick snack.

    Hi,
    I was wondering for those of us who have picky eaters if you could substitute anything for the jam?

    Hi Amber! You could completely leave out the jam. You could use chocolate chips instead of jam or mix a little peanut butter in with the cream cheese mixture. You could use well drained and patted dry canned peach slices as well. If you come up with an interesting variation, please let me know.
