Used to make these years ago and just started making them again. Again, from the Philly Cream Cheese cookbook! The recipe calls for a jelly roll pan which I haven't had in years , so I just use a 9x13 pan. SOOO yummy. Again , eating smaller squares means less guilt! This is a favorite of my co-workers too. Hope you enjoy it!
