  • 3 Shape dough into 38 (1 1/4-inch) balls. Roll into pretzel mixture, pressing slightly to stick. Place balls 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Press thumb into center of each cookie to make indentation, but do not press all the way to the cookie sheet.
  • 4 Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until edges are set and light golden brown. Immediately remake indentation in each cookie with back of teaspoon. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Spoon rounded 1/4 teaspoon jam into each indentation. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 5 In small bowl, beat Cream Cheese Drizzle ingredients with spoon until smooth. If necessary, add more milk, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, until thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle on tops of cookies.

Expert Tips

  • Try blackberry or raspberry jam for a twist on these cookies.
  • To soften cream cheese, microwave uncovered on Medium-Low (30%) 15 to 20 seconds.
