  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 packages (3 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup ground toasted almonds
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk(not evaporated milk)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/3 cups HERSHEY'S Cinnamon Chips, divided

  • 1. Beat butter and cream cheese in large bowl until well blended; stir in flour, sugar and almonds. Cover; refrigerate about 1 hour.

  • 3. Heat oven to 375°F. Beat eggs in small bowl. Add sweetened condensed milk and vanilla; mix well. Place 7 cinnamon chips in bottom of each cookie shell; fill a generous three-fourth full with sweetened condensed milk mixture.
  • 4. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until tops are puffed and just beginning to turn golden brown. Cool 3 minutes. Sprinkle about 15 chips on top of each cookie. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Remove from pan using small metal spatula or sharp knife. Store tightly covered at room temperature. About 4 dozen.

    I made these this past Christmas and did not like them. The dough for the cup part was very good although I did not like the flavor of the cinnamon chips. Maybe if chocolate chips replaced the cinnamon chips they might be better. They were quite a bit of work too.

    These cookies were really good. The cookie cups are very moist and they were easy to make. Yummy.
