Mmmm....these are really delicious cookies! Unusual texture, chewy edges, soft middle. My cookies didn't look like the picture. They were thicker. I was out of walnuts so I used toasted pecans and would use them again and may cut back a little on the sugar, I'm trying to cut back were I can. Thanks for sharing this keeper recipe!

My family liked these! I got 19 cookies. I messed up on the first batch. I accidentally set the oven to 325 instead of 375. So I baked 5 more minutes and some burned. :( next batch was good. I had a half a brick of cream cheese I needed to use up. So this was perfect! I probably used 4 oz though. I was a little concerned that it didn't use any eggs. I also used 3/4 up of sugar.
