These melt-in-your-mouth cookies are one of my mom's specialties. Made with cream cheese and butter, they're very rich...and the pecans add wonderful flavor. They're great with hot cup of coffee or a tall glass of milk. —Jeanne Voss Anaheim Hills, California

"My youngest daughter and I LOVE these cookies. They are perfection with coffee or tea. Not everyone wants a sweet tasting cookie all the time; these are just sweet enough for us. :)"

"After reading the reviews, I increased the sugar to 1/3 c. and they were good. My favorite Christmas cookie is made with sour cream. They are T of H Angel cookies. Work the extra work. Everybody loves them"

"I have to agree with momsmrf. I too used the recipe from the T.O.H. magazine and wish I had looked it up on the web site to see the reviews before making these. Won't make them again."
