Top Review by NorthwestGal

5-stars just for how easy these are. But they really are very good, so 5-stars for the overall taste, too. I used Cherry Preserves because that's all I had in my pantry. But the cream cheese filling was so good and really made this a wonderful little cookie such a treat. I would be happy to bring these to a potluck, party or any type of gathering. Thanks for such a great recipe, Kim!
