Over the years I've come to appreciate less sweet desserts. I have modified this one to have 1 pint whipping cream instead of 1 cup and reduced the powdered sugar to 1 1/2 cups. I think it is much improved!

This is what I consider a "pantry dessert" since most of the ingredients (if you use Dream Whip) are pantry items and I always have plenty of cream cheese (and butter) in the refrigerator to use for desserts, hor d'oeuvres, etc.
