"Cream cheese adds a rich flavor to this chocolate chunk and walnut drop cookie." These are from a Land O' Lakes magazine. I think they look yummy!

these cookies were amazing. as my husband said they would be the most perfect cookie ever if they didnt have chocolate... poor thing doesnt like chocolate. but for the rest of us... its just the perfect cookie. moist, delicous and the walnuts are fabulous in it, as are the chocolate chunks. the directions are excelent.. the only thing i did was add a little vanilla to it.. but it may not have even needed that.. thank you for a delicous recipe that will be made again.
