I haven't tried these yet, but I'm putting the recipe here for safe keeping. They sound really good, and I think I'll be making them for the holidays. Prep time includes chilling time.

These were scrumptious cookies! I used margerine spread instead of butter and Neufchatel cheese instead of cream cheese to lighten it up and it turned out fine. They do taste a lot like cheesecake when they're warm. Great recipe!
