“You can’t get too much winter in the winter !” – Robert Frost
We have been having a colder winter than years past and as much as I love chilly weather , I haven’t been wanting to do much more than stay bundled up all day with a good book and a hot beverage. Its an absolute torture waking up to get to work on time. The animals who hibernate have got the right idea!
On one brisk evening, I did get a chance to try these cookies that were on my to-bake list for a while now. These cream cheese cookies have many fans and rave reviews on the Food52 site . Having some cream cheese left in my tub , too little for frosting or a cheesecake and too much to throw away , I knew I had no excuse not to try these!
Not only were they so easy to make, they were super yummy . Wonderful texture and unique taste. The first batch was devoured away before I realised and next time around , I added cocoa that took an already great cookie , right over the edge ( of course, being a true blue chocoholic , i could be biased here !). You can chose one over the other (check my notes ), or just make both in one go ! You must try these and let me know which ones you liked better!
These were just perfect . One of the patrons at the Food52 site calls the flavour “sophisticated ” and thats so true. The edges are crisp and the centres are chewy. Sweet with that slight tang. Really fantastic cookies and the chocolate ones are to die for!!
