These just beg "Pick me up and put me in your mouth."
What I like about these cookies is the tartness from the cream cheese filling that tones down the other sweet flavors. This time I chose to top them with a mixture of white c-chips and butterscotch or semi-sweet chips. I haven't used butterscotch on them before and really liked the flavor. For holidays they are fun to top with whatever fun chips your store sells, such as striped green and white. I am sure they would lend themselves well to other toppings. While they are made in mini muffin tins, they are still more than a bite-full.
