A treat to quell those sweet cravings.

Sounds yummy but I don't think this recipe would be considered Fat Flush friendly in phase one or two, because of the dairy and fat content.

I think this recipe would be ok in moderation, everything in it you can eat in phase one. Sounds good too.

I LOVE pumpkin. On Atkins it is hard to get Vitamin A and this is loaded full. I have never tired with cream cheese--YUMMY!! Plus it has good fiber. This is so much better than taking vitamin pills.

It does sound good! Have you tried w/neuchatel cheese? ww has recipe using phyllo dough for crust.This may have too many points for me!

I actually tried it with 1/2 cup low fat ricotta and 1 tsp splenda brown sugar, it was still yummy!

Hello?!? One serving, with a quarter-cup of CREAM CHEESE plus a TBS of BUTTER?!? What planet are they living on? Since when is this a "diet" treat?!? I would certainly try it using fat-free cream cheese and diet margarine, but it might not taste the same -- don't know.
