These cookies are my holiday favorites. I have been baking them at Christmas every year for about ten years now. They have a great flavor and look festive on the cookie tray. Be careful not to overbake them - - very lightly browned is perfect for a slightly chewy, cheesecake taste.
We did not like these cookies. Too dry and tasted like flour. I followed directions as stated.
Yummy! Very delicate cheesecakey kind of taste.
Just one note - my oven is a bit hotter than most, so the bottoms are a bit black. Starting at 10 minutes, keep y our eye on them to make sure that the cookies don't burn!
I've been looking for a cream cheese based recipes since my sister lost hers. I think this is as good if not better. I loved it with the pecans but might add chopped red and green candied cherries next time for color.
These cookies were great! Everyone loved them and they weren't difficult to make. The only problem I had was that my pecans kept falling off. I also made a batch with almonds instead of pecans and these were also wonderful.
These cookies were very easy to prepare and after refrigerating they were easy to cut and baked up just right. Awesome flavor will definately make again. Wonderful cookie!
These are delicious! Instead of using the pecans on the top, I mixed in 1/2 cup of chopped red cherries and 1/2 cup of green cherries. They looked very festive with the red and green sugar and tasted even better. I had to stick them in the freezer so I would have some left for the holidays! This recipe is a keeper!
This is a great cookie recipe, and easy to prepare. I found that putting the colored sugar into a large zipper bag and then dropping the whole roll in to coat it worked best. Also, make sure to push the pecan into the dough a bit on top so that it will stay put. I used my KitchenAid mixer to cream the sugar and cream cheese, I think it would be a bit difficult by hand. Also, doubling the recipe fills the kitchenaid bowl to the brim......
