    This is the easiest and delicious cookie recipe I have ever tried. Every one who has tried them in my family has begged for more. I make them a bit healthier by switching the sugar for splenda, fat free cream cheese, the healthier stick butter, and I use whole wheat flour. Splenda even came out with powdered sugar so I am even more excited! Enjoy!

    Be sure you have a beverage when you're eating these, they are so dry you might choke. The recipe doesn't make 7 dozen cookies and takes much longer than the 30 minutes it states. Really disappointing.
