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.
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.
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.
