These colossal cookies taste best when golden around the edges and moist and chewy in the center. With a glass of milk, they're polished off in no time by my grandchildren.

My grandmother always made these cookies for us for Christmas, and now I have inherited that task. I make them throughout the year because I enjoy baking a lot. With rich cream cheese in the dough and the sugary almond topping, a batch doesn’t last long at our house!
