A treat to quell those sweet cravings.

I accidentally rated this 1, though I have not tried it. I clicked the Vote button at the top, thinking I was going to be voting on whether this recipe was good for Atkins, Induction Phase on another page or pop-up. I have changed my vote to a neutral 3. Sorry - newbie mistake.

OMG i LOVE pumpkin!! I cant wait to try this!!
"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." This makes me laugh.. HELLOOO. research the atkins diet.. you know.. the diet the recipe is actually for. This sounds delicious and I will definitely be trying it in the next few days!
