Cream Cheese Finger Cookies Recipe

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

"True. Not every cookie must be overly sweet, but those cookies are completely tasteless! I had to make a hot chocolate deep and that kind of saved the situation, but I will never make them again."

"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."

"I thought these were quite bland. If not for the powdered sugar, they wouldn't have much flavor. While assembling the ingredients I wondered if the "1 Tablespoon Sugar" was correct. I used an old recipe I had clipped from the T of H magazine and I see that the recipe online is the same."

"That's ok! Not every recipe is for every person. Back to the drawing board, right?"

"I understand that as I am Hungarian and we have several cookies that are not "sweet" but these were just flavorless. When I make my grandmother's recipe for similar cookies you don't really need the powdered sugar as they are just sweet enough...sorry but these were just bad (in my opinion)."
