makes about 16-18 small cookies.
Originally this recipe called for a slightly sweetened goat cheese-milk mixture, but I found that plain goat cheese works just as well and is far simpler. And simple is good in the holidays, right? Just consider avoiding aged goat cheese for the filling, which melts more like a regular cheese and might be off-putting for a cookie (though it works spectacularly in the dough to make it even softer!)
Finally, if you’re not a huge fan of goat cheese, cream cheese will work wonderfully in its place.
