I made these cookies for a friend's children, as they aren't allowed to eat candy or anything too unhealthy. The kids loved them and my friend approved! You can use canned cream cheese or sugar free frosting, or make a home made cream cheese frosting with reduced fat cream cheese.

These yummy treats are super moist and delicious. They're so good, kiddos won't miss the candy. And adults can sneak a few too. I had extra cream cheese frosting so topped them with that and the flavor combination was fabulous. I highly recommend these! The Test Kitchen
