Magazine Mondays: Cream Cheese Cookies

Magazine Mondays is here. It's created by my favorite blogger Ivonne of Cream Puff in Venice. Its actually a great idea because through Magazine Mondays events, I would be force to dig up my old magazines and finally make some of the recipes that I have marked way way back. I have stacks and stacks of food magazines both local in my room. My mom even noted that my room looks like a library with all the books and the magazines everywhere. Ever since the tragic storm that destroyed all my cookbooks, I've been storing everything in my room. ^_^ With so many choices to choose from I didn't know where to start.
For my first Magazine Mondays event, I chose a recipe from Martha Stewart Holiday 2005. Foreign food magazines tend to me expensive here, so I usually get mine from a used bookstore for only 1/4 its price, although its now a back issue when I do get it. I love the thrill of hunting for issues that I like. I bought this copy off ebay months ago, now as I was browsing through it I realized something. This recipes in this magazine is exactly like the recipes in the Martha Stewart Cookies book! I'm so glad that means I don't need to buy this book again! hahaha...although some recipe found in the book might not be in the magazine, I don't seem to care :)
I chose this cookie because I was intrigue because the main ingredient is cream cheese. I have lots of leftover cream cheese from all the holiday baking I did but didn't get to use all. And another plus is that it uses walnuts. I love walnuts, this is one of my favorite nuts. It's a slice and bake recipe meaning after mixing everything together. The cookie dough is shaped into a log and put in the fridge until it's cold so it's easier to slice.

To be honest I have trouble with the slice and bake method, I can't seem to cut them evenly! It's driving me crazy! I'm such an OC person and when I see those crooked cookies, they seems to be taunting me! hahaha.... I know I weird ^_^

But seriously, they taste good, like a shortbread but softer and they taste very rich.

  4. Hi Nicole,

    I came across your site on Cream Puffs. I'm a lawyer who also dreams of life in the kitchen (going to Le Cordon Bleu cookery school in March). Was wondering if you would like to exchange links?
