Here is another cookie that I made over the holidays. These were really good and so easy. I have made these at different times during the year since they are really simple and very good. I found this recipe at Kats Kitchen. I may not post again for several days since I will be down in the Richmond area again where we also have a home. I just had the kitchen and several other rooms painted and now I am searching for a new kitchen floor. I will be glad when all the improvements are done!!!!
1/4 cup butter
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 package yellow cake mix
1 jar cherries (I used candied cherries that I cut in half)
Cream butter and cheese in a bowl. Blend in egg and vanilla. Add dry cake mix 1/3 at a time, mixing well in between. Gather dough in a ball and cover and chill for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 F. Form dough into 1 inch balls. (Dough can be sticky so I usually keep my hands wet while doing this and that solves the problem of it sticking to my hands.) Drop onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes, until dough is slightly tan. Immediately place cherry in center. Cool on wire rack.
