      Thanks for sharing your delicious recipe Lainey. We enjoyed these tasty little morsels very much. The rich, chocolate cream cheese filling was the perfect partner for the cookie. I garnished the top of the cookies with a little leftover crushed peppermint.

      I think there may be a mistake in the recipe. I think it should say 1/2 lb of butter. I made these as stated, and all I got was a bowl of dry ingredients. I added another stick of butter and they turned out fine.
