Everyone who knows me, knows that I don't bake. So when I do, it is a very simple/easy recipe! I have been making these for over 25 years. It is a very rich/decadent cookie and taste like you've put a lot of work into it! *My picture...just finished baking these for my family's dessert tonight.

    **Because this is a dense dough made with cream cheese instead of eggs, it does not spread out flat.

    ***NOTE: I store them in an air tight container in the fridge after they have cooled. Tastes even better the next day. And they freeze well if you choose to freeze them.
