Ingredients

Cookies

Cream Cheese Drizzle

  • 2 oz (from 8-oz package) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons milk

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Line large cookie sheets with cooking parchment paper. In small bowl, mix crushed pretzels, granulated sugar and melted butter. Set aside.
  • 2
    In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Add 3 oz cream cheese and the flour; mix with spoon or hands until well blended. (DO NOT EAT RAW COOKIE DOUGH AFTER COMBINING WITH FLOUR.)
  • 3
    Shape dough into 38 (1 1/4-inch) balls. Roll into pretzel mixture, pressing slightly to stick. Place balls 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Press thumb into center of each cookie to make indentation, but do not press all the way to the cookie sheet.
  • 4
    Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until edges are set and light golden brown. Immediately remake indentation in each cookie with back of teaspoon. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Spoon rounded 1/4 teaspoon jam into each indentation. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 5
    In small bowl, beat Cream Cheese Drizzle ingredients with spoon until smooth. If necessary, add more milk, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, until thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle on tops of cookies.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To crush pretzels, transfer to resealable food-storage plastic bag, and seal. Crush with rolling pin until coarsely crushed.
  • tip 2
    Try blackberry or raspberry jam for a twist on these cookies.
  • tip 3
    To soften cream cheese, microwave uncovered on Medium-Low (30%) 15 to 20 seconds.
  • tip 4
    Cookies are best served the same day. For leftover cookies, store cookies in covered container in refrigerator.
