- 1 (1 pound, 1.5 ounce) package dry sugar cookie mix (recommended: Betty Crocker)
- 4 ounces cream cheese, softened and cut into pieces
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons cherry extract
- 12 red or green candied cherries, halved
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Fit a cookie press or resealable plastic bag with a star template or 3/4-inch star tip. Pipe dough in 2 1/2-inch lines, 2 inches apart on an un-greased cookie sheet. Press a cherry half at the base of each shell. Bake for 12 minutes, until brown on bottom and raw look is gone from tops.
