The directions have been updated to say "softened cream cheese". Thanks for bringing this to our attention!

wouldn't crushed pineapple be better than chunks? chunk pineapple seems to be too bulky.

why would u freeze cream cheese? Cream cheese does not do well if frozen.The recipe says mix thawed cream cheese with-----

I'm sure they did not mean frozen cream cheese. I would say that a better word than "thawed" would be " softened to room temperature". That's my take on this recipe.

Wondering the same as djhixson ... I would think it is the Cool Whip that is to be thawed
