I decided to make this dip from A Spotted Pony because I had 4oz of cream cheese left over from a different recipe. 4oz of cream cheese made a half recipe.
I thought that the half recipe was quite a lot of dip. Perhaps this was because I didn't particularly care for the dip. Perhaps the dip just wasn't cheesecake-y enough for my tastes. Anyway, Mrblocko loved the dip with graham crackers and apples.
