These are perfect. Sweet and they have a kick but its subtle because the cream cheese will mask the spice just enough. My honey, daughter, and myself have made them twice since finding the recipe a couple weeks ago. We also plan to make them as a snacking appetizer for Thanksgiving this year- its so quick and easy to make! Thank you!
