Growing up, my Aunt Margie made the best Christmas cookies. My favorite was her cream cheese chocolate chip cookies. Every year, I looked forward to those tangy and light cookies. They were so pillowy and soft. When I was old enough, she shared the recipe with me, but I lost it. With no way to recover it, I had to hunt down another recipe. I am sad to say while these are yummy and soft chocolate chip cookies, they are missing that tangy flavor I remember and not as cakey as the ones from my childhood.
