This is an easy and delish recipe. The dough is flaky and tastes fantastic. I was skeptical of the cream cheese, but clearly this combination works! You don't taste the cream cheese in it at all - it is a wonderful pie dough. In fact, I fully intend to make a pie using this for crust. I made three different kinds: apple pie filling, pineapple preserves, and strawberry preserves. I liked the pineapple the best, but everyone else raved over the apple pie filling. I made a double batch and was glad I did. The recipe doesn't make much and when I doubled it I had some left over. The dough stayed in the fridge fine for five days. I actually thought it was easier to work with after it sat for a couple of days. The key is that the dough MUST be very cold. I plan to try making a savory one with ham and cheese. I am going to try to make it with very thinly sliced deli ham and cheese from a wedge of laughing cow swiss. I can almost taste it now. Make this recipe!!! You won't be sorry.
