As written, you would use a total of 12 ounces of cream cheese. That would be one full 8oz block, and a half of one- meaning 4 ounces more. Typically a recipe tells you the size can, bottle, or in this case, block- of the ingredient. Cream cheese can come in larger blocks, on the rare occasion, and in tubs sometimes. But as long as you have 12 ounces total, you are good to go.
