These are excellent .. I had a bit of a problem, the dough was just too crumbly to hold together .. so I just added an egg, and they came out great .. thanks for posting!

My darling Toolie, you are going to be the star of my Passover holiday! I made these kosher for Passover by substituting matzah cake meal for the flour. I also used full-fat cream cheese. These cookies have a rugalach taste to them, which makes sense with the combination of cream cheese and chocolate. I can't wait to make these next week with regular flour. Toolie, your mom had a winner with this one!

Delicious! These cookies are so good!!! I followed Mirj's advice and made these for Passover substituting matzah cake meal for the flour. I recently made them again with regular flour and full fat cream cheese. They were excellent. Elaine, thanks so much for posting this wonderful recipe.
