I wanted to make Amecian cookies for Christmas. This is my first Christmas cookies I made because it is not so difficult to make. In my country, Japan, people eat Christmas Cake, not cookie but now I live in the US and want to learn American culture, food, traditions and so on. This is the one of the things I learned. Since I love cheesecake, I added cream cheese and chocolate so these taste like chocolate cheesecake. Yummy.
