I liked this recipe as well but used goat cheese instead and found the taste much smoother

This is a great recipe and one you wouldn't think is dietetic but it is only 1 weight watchers point!

Serving size is 1 triangle. Please note that the nutrition facts and serving size have been updated. Thank you for your question.


this recipe tells what the point value per serving is (1), but I can't see what the serving size actually is, i.e., 2 triangles, or 6? Can anyone clarify for me? thx!
