My husband can’t have dairy. Lame, I know. So, I made this with Tofutti Dairy Free Cream Cheese and non-dairy butter. It turned out really well. Of course, it will be fabulous with regular sour cream and butter also. Oh, how I miss those days! However you make it, enjoy it! You’ll find it hard not to go back and sneak bites. (unless you have amazing discipline which you should totally tell the rest of us how to get! LOL)
