Great cookies. I tweaked it to suit my own tastes. Instead of the 1 cup butter I used 1/2 cup butter + 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce. I used 1/4 less cup of flour, added another tsp of vanilla. I used 1/2 tsp cinnamon as well & added another 1/2 cup of sugar. I used light cream cheese which made no difference in taste & added a few more tbsp of that. thank you for a nice recipe; I've been searching for a cream cheese cookie that I could work with!
