    I think it sounds very, very good, but I personally would have a terrible time with portion control and this recipe.
    I know that moderation is key with any lifestyle change, but I probably couldn't be trusted to moderate myself with a pan of this sitting around!

    I used one can of crescent rolls, Splenda instead of sugar, 8 oz of low fat cream cheese, and a small container of fresh blueberries and a small container of blackberries sprinkled with a little Splenda, and baked it in a 9x9 pan. It was delicious, and didn't taste anything like a "safe" dessert! - 1/4/09

    The recipe is very easy and tasty. I will use this for company and special occasions. Next time I will use 1 package of cream cheese, like DebHarb recommended. To get 15 servings and get the calorie count down, the serving size was pretty tiny. Don't make this if you don't have help eating it! - 1/4/09

    These certainly were EASY. Hubby said this was the best dessert I've ever made and I've made TONS! I thought they were pretty good considering the ease of this recipe. I added a glaze flavoured with almond extract to make it look more like a danish ;o)
    Thanks for this great recipe!
