creamy shortbread cookies

i had a gazillion names for this cookie because they have distinctive ingredients, but i came up with this "creamy shortbread cookies". This cookie has a texture like a shortbread but is really creamy and has sort of a cheesecake after taste because of the cream cheese. i made about 2 dozens or so and it was gone in a day. My family loved these cookies and i think this recipe will stay for a long time!
