These cookies did not need the cream cheese frosting at all - in fact, I thought it detracted from how good these cookies were. If this recipe were for the cookies alone, I would have given it 5 stars. I would recommend adding the baking soda to the flour before adding it to the mix, and I was slightly scared by how crumbly the mixture was, but with a little heat from my palms, it stuck together and turned out great. As my husband said, they taste like chocolate chip cookies without the chocolate chips. Thanks!

DELICIOUS!!! I made these as a desert for some company we had over the weekend and they loved them! THe kids loved them, their kids loved them, I got exactly 24 cookies just like the yield suggested. They were fabulous, so soft and chewy. I am making these for Valentines day for my sons class and I am going to use red food coloring in the icing! Will definately keep this recipe, thank you. Oh yea, I used shortening instead of butter. I always get a softer cookie that way.

I love cream cheese so I decided to make these. The taste at first is odd but you get used to it and they actually are quite delicious. My family ate them all in one day!
