These cookies taste like you are eating a Cherry Danish.  So, I guess that means you can eat them for breakfast without any guilt!  Our families loved them.  These cookies are perfect for Valentine's Day or a yummy cherry dessert on President's Day.  This recipe is adapted from Jamhands.

Cherry Danish Cookies

Ingredients
Cookies:
1 cup butter, softened
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1 Tablespoon milk
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 egg yolk
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
30 ounces (big can) cherry pie filling

Glaze:
1 1 /2 cups powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons milk

Directions
Cookies:
Beat butter, cream cheese, milk and sugar together.  Then add egg yolk. Stir flour and baking powder into butter mixture to make a stiff dough. Works best if chilled overnight or for a few hours.

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.  Roll out dough 1/4" thick. Cut into circles with a 2 inch round cookie cutter. Place on ungreased cookie sheet 1" apart.  Make an indent in each cookie with your thumb and fill with 1 teaspoon of cherry pie filling.

Bake 10-12 minutes.  Cool completely.

Glaze:
Mix powdered sugar and milk. If it's too runny add more powdered sugar.  If too thick, add a little milk.  Mix til smooth.  Put glaze in a sandwich baggie with the corner snipped off.  Pipe the glaze onto the top of each cookie.
Makes 3 to 4 dozen cookies

    I just started making these and saw that the only sugar in the cookie itself is 1 Tbsp. Has anyone else made these and if so, I would love to know if 1 Tbsp of suger works?

    I made these and they were delicious. I also made them using apple pie filling that I diced. Will make again. Next time I will try almond extract to the dough as suggested by other comments.
