Personal Notes:
These are a family favorite . Twomama, mama, all the aunts have been making these cookies forever, but never just one recipe. One recipe of these cookies makes only enough to make everybody hungry! This type cookie were called cocoons but that version did not have cream cheese as an ingredient.
