  • 1
    Heat oven to 350° F.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, beat 1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookie dough, 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened, and 3/4 cup all-purpose flour until well blended. Shape into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  • 3
    Bake about 11 minutes or until dry and just starting to crack on top. Remove cookies to cooling rack to cool completely.
  • 4
    Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix 1 cup powdered sugar, 2 teaspoons water and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla until well combined. Add more water, 1/4 teaspoon at a time, if needed to make thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over tops of cooled cookies. Top with candy sprinkles.

Expert Tips

Replace vanilla with anise extract for a more Italian flavor.

Make cookies ahead. Shape dough into balls, then cover and place in freezer. When ready to bake, just bring them out. Bake the whole batch, or just a few at a time.
