These are very good. They aren't too difficult either. I love the flavor of the dough and the sweet filling is very nice. I like that you put the number of chips and not a measurement. It's a bit of a pain to measure out some things, such as baking chips. I will be making these again later this month for a ladies bible study. Made and Reviewed for 123 Hit Wonders - Thanks! :)

These are wonderful! My mom used to make these every year around CHRISTmas; she found the recipe from a Hershey baking book, and they were my favorites! They do take some work, but it's definitely worth the time and effort. :) I made up the dough, let it chill, and then divided it up the night before I wanted to make them. If I had made everything all at once, I would have been too overwhelmed, so spreading the work out over two days really helped. Also, I used recipe #14062 and it worked wonderfully.

oh yum, these are good, I made as stated and I think I will give them a go using mini chocolate chips in place of the cinnamon, I chilled the cream cheese dough much longer as stated I think it needed more time to firm up, I am going to save this recipe for my xmas cookie tray, they are very good, thanks for sharing Kim!
