A combination of all things delicious and wonderful! Somewhat labor-intensive for a cookie recipe, but well worth the effort!
Cream Cheese Filling
6 oz cream cheese, softened
¼ C sugar
1 ½ tsp vanilla
Sift together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
While the dough is chilling, mix together the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Cover and chill for 30 minutes.
Scoop out one tablespoon of dough and flatten into a pancake. Drop one teaspoon of cream cheese filling. Scoop out another tablespoon of dough, flatten into a pancake, place it on top, and pinch together the seams. Roll this into a ball and cover with cinnamon sugar.
Flatten the cookies just slightly before baking.
Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes until the tops start to crack (they don’t brown up very much).
*I got just over 3 dozen cookies from this recipe, so you may want to consider halving it.
