Caramel-Scotch Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

I came up with this cream cheese coffee cake recipe so I could make a delicious brunch treat using convenience pastry for the base. Serving it when it’s cold means that all the cozy filling stays with each slice. —Sherry Little, Sherwood, Arkansas

    1 carton (7-1/2 ounces) spreadable brown sugar and cinnamon cream cheese... What is this? Where to buy? Does it have to be made using 3 separate ingredients?
