Bring festive color to your dessert with these beautiful flower-shaped cookies - perfect treat to impress your guests.

Ingredients

3/4
cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2
cup sugar
1
teaspoon vanilla
30
drops red food color
1
egg
1
package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
2
cups all-purpose flour
Red sugar, if desired
About 3 dozen yellow candy-coated chocolate candies or other small yellow candies

Steps

  • 1 Beat butter, sugar, vanilla, food color, egg and cream cheese in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon. Stir in flour. Cover and refrigerate about 2 hours or until firm.
  • 2 Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls; roll in red sugar. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour.
  • 3 Heat oven to 375ºF. Place balls about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Make 6 cuts with sharp knife in top of each ball about three-fourths of the way through to make 6 wedges. Spread wedges apart very slightly to form flower petals (cookies will separate and flatten as they bake).
  • 4 Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set and edges begin to brown. Immediately press 1 candy in center of each cookie. Carefully remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
