Shun, How are you mixing the cream cheese and confectioner sugar.Does the amount of sugar make it too sweet? This sounds great.

I have made these before but used 1 stick butter with the confectioners sugar and cream cheese. I added some chocolate chips in it and some chopped pecans in the crust. It came out fantastic. atssealocn
