These were really good. I did not have any chocolate cream cheese (I couldn't find it anywhere) so I subbed nutella and I thought it paired superbly. Read More

Absolutely delicious cookie! I made them for our family Christmas Eve get together this year and they were gone almost as soon as I set out the plate. I had never used flavored Philly Cream Cheese before so I was doubtful about the flavor so I bought a jar of Nutella just in case. There was absolutely no need for that because the cream cheese is delicious! The recipe gave me exactly 30 cookies which I baked for exactly 12 minutes. They were firm slightly crisp on the outside soft on the inside. Any longer would have made them crumbly. This cookie is a permanent part of my holiday baking! Read More
