Cherry Danish Cookies
20 minPrep Time 10 minCook Time
30 minTotal Time
1 cup butter (softened) 1 (8 ounce) cream cheese (room temp) 1 Tablespoon milk 1 Tablespoon sugar 1 egg (yolk only) 1 1/2 cups flour 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1 (30 ounce) can cherry pie filling
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar 2 Tablespoons milk
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
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. 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.
Mix powdered sugar and milk. If it's too runny add more powdered sugar. If too thick, add a little milk. Mix until smooth. Put glaze in a sandwich baggie with the corner snipped off. Pipe the glaze onto the top of each cookie.
