I made these for my husband’s “Food Day” at work. They were a hit. They are easy to make! 

I buy Keebler’s mini already made pie crusts in the little tins.

3 bricks cream cheese softened

1c sugar

2TBS flour

1tsp vanilla

2 eggs

1 egg yolk

1/4c milk

1 can of cherry pie filling

Add a little cinnamon and or allspice or nutmeg.

Makes 12

Add cream cheese, sugar, flour and vanilla into mixer on medium speed until combined. Add whole eggs and yolk all at once. Beat on LOW speed just until combined. Stir in the milk. The most important thing I learned is to not mix too much, it’s okay if it’s a little lumpy. I then fill the tins, and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. 375 degrees for about 45 minutes, or until top is golden. I use a fork to double check for doneness, if it comes out clean, it’s done! Add your topping of choice after they cool. I usually use cherries and sliced almonds. Watch how fast they disappear…

I decided that I wanted to make some classic sugar cookies in the shape of Christmas trees so I browsed around for a simple recipe with decent reviews. I also looked for a good icing recipe. This is what I found.
