LOVE these things! My aunt makes these into bars every Christmas and they are my absolute favorite (along with the zucchini bread!) thing to receive every year!
I haven't made these yet, but will try them this weekend for my children's church play potluck!

In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese and butter.
