Grew up in New England and started to bake these cookies with my Mom every year for 50+ years. It wouldn't be Christmas without them. These days I tint them green and dunk them in white bark. Sometimes I make them into a sandwich. One of my favorites! 5 stars

I grew up in Ohio where my mother made these every year. I now make them for my step daughters and they love them. 5 stars

Would not make this again.
The dough was very sticky! I tried adding some flour, which helped a little. Our cookies did not look good, but I'll admit they did taste good! :) I will probably try a different Cream Cheese recipe next time. 3 stars
