These cookies are beyond addicting. I made them at Christmas and they were the first cookies to go.

With a Cherry on Top Cookies
• 2 sticks butter
• 1 3 oz. cream cheese; softened
• 1 egg yolk
• 1 teaspoon vanilla
• 1 cup sugar
• 2 ¾ cups flour
• Maraschino cherries
• Preheat oven to 325.
• Cream butter and cream cheese together by hand. Add sugar and egg yolk and combine together. Add flour and vanilla.
• Drain maraschino cherries; dry them on a paper towel and cut them in half.
• Roll dough into small balls and place on a nonstick cookie sheet.
• Press cherry into the center of the cookie.
• Bake for 15 minutes.
note: these do not brown. They are done after 15 minutes or sooner. Allow them to stay on the cookie sheet until they are completely cooled.
