Yesterday, I promised to share two yummy recipes with you, Eierkuchen (best translated as “fluffy pancakes,” but literally “egg cakes”), and vanilla syrup. I just found another recipe that I’m going to share with you (I explain why in the Eierkuchen post), but I have decided to post only one recipe per post. That will make it easier for you to print it off, for those of you who want to do that. I’ll always provide links at the beginning and end of the posts to the other recipes in the grouping.

8 oz. cream cheese

Blend cream cheese, sugar, and salt in a small mixer bowl. Add egg; beat until smooth. Stir in peanut butter-flavored chips. Set aside.
