Cream Cheese Dainties

Comment on this recipe

These cookies are great. I went to a get-together about 4 years ago where they were served. The gal said the recipe came from her mom.

Ingredients

1/2 butter or margarine
1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cups Rice Krispies cereal, coarsely crushed
Red and green candied cherries

Instructions

Cream together butter or margarine, cream cheese, sugar and almond extract until light. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Stir into butter mixture just until combined. Chill 1 to 2 hours. Shape into balls; roll in cereal and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Top each with a cherry. Bake in 350 degree oven for 12-15 minutes. Cool on racks. Makes 4 dozen.
