Summary

Reduced fat cream cheese in the dough helps make it tender and tasty with a dollop of cherry or raspberry spreadable fruit atop each cookie.

What you'll need

  • 3/4 cup margarine, softened
  • 1 pkg. reduced-fat cream cheese, softened (8 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup measurable sweetener, or eight packets
  • 2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup black cherry or seedless raspberry spreadable fruit

Instructions

  • Step 1
    Beat margarine, cream cheese and sweetener in medium bowl until fluffy; mix in flour and salt to form a soft dough. Cover and refrigerate until dough is firm, about three hours.
  • Step 2
    Roll dough on lightly floured surface into circle 1/8 thick; cut into rounds with 3-inch cutter.
  • Step 3
    Place rounded 1/4-teaspoon spreadable fruit in center of each round; fold rounds in halves and crimp edges firmly with tines of fork. Pierce tops of cookies with tip of sharp knife.
  • Step 4
    Bake cookies on greased cookie sheets in preheated 350-degree oven until lightly browned, about ten minutes. Cool on wire racks.
