DEVILS FOOD DROP COOKIES with Cream Cheese Frosting

Can you believe it?  I finally presented a post!  I don’t know what’s wrong with me lately, I can’t seem to get my act together.  It must be my age…..I have two many irons in the fire, and don’t seem to finish any of them.  I’ve been wanting to make these yummy cookies for a while now.  They remind me of home, bake food sales for cheerleading and drill team fund raisers.  They were a favorite of my brothers, who often reminded me to “Get Off My Butt and Bake”….something.  These cookies stay soft, and also freeze well.  I made half with big chunks of walnuts and half with sliced almonds, only on the top. Your family will enjoy these as well. 
For me….the more nuts the better!
This recipe makes 2 dozen cookies.
