Directions

  • 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.
