I really liked these cookies. They're very easy. I did not roll them into balls-just dropped them on the cookie sheet. I didn't press them down, either. Baked them at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.

I tried to make these cookies with little success. I think they meant 8oz. of cream cheese instead of 3. Might be good otherwise!
