I have renamed this GUERRILLA bread because it overtakes your senses and is bursting with flavor! I used light cream cheese and cut the white sugar to 3/4 cup - no one could tell the difference. I will be adding this to my recipe collection.

Hi Paula, I live in a tiny town w/almost all Amish neighbors. Each yr. I bake the children next door a birthday cake. If I didn't give them an ooey gooey dessert they would think I was mad at them. They don't have TV so they don't know who "Paula Deen" is. Thank you for letting me take all the credit for your fabulous desserts! They think I'm the "cats meow" when it comes to baking. Take care D. Cruse

@ South Africa: If you don't have refrigerated biscuit dough, just supplement with homemade biscuit dough which is cheap and easy to make, just search "biscuit" on paula's site. good luck.

I made it according to directions and it came out gummy. The oven temp is correct for sure because I have a thermometer in there just in case. Looks good, but disappointing.

Just made this but used sweetened condensed milk as the spread instead of cream cheese. Paulas step daughter uses this version and it's truly amazing. Totally different taste. Tastes like heaven I'm told!
