These wonderful light cookies bring back so many good memories from my childhood. We always had these around Easter and Christmas. They look like sugar cookies, but the cream cheese in them gives them that special taste. If you freeze the cookies before eating them they are even better!! Modifications: I've used light margarine, low fat cream cheese, and substituted 1 cup of Splenda all without harming the end results. Also, the last time I made them I subbed in 1 cup of whole wheat flour and they were still great. But, I've never made all these changes in the same batch of dough, so it's up to you if you want to try that. Prep time does not include chill time, but does include roll-out time.
