  • 1 (16oz.) package refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 4 ounces whipped cream cheese
  • cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup granulated sugar optional coating
  • ¾ cup cherry pie filling


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large bowl or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat together the cookie dough, cream cheese, and flour until fully combined, scraping down the sides as needed.
  • Use a medium cookie scoop to portion out the dough and lightly roll it into balls with your hands.
  • Roll the dough balls in granulated sugar and place cookies 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until the edges are set.
  • Remove from the oven and gently press the back of a round teaspoon into the center of each to create a well. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Use the teaspoon to scoop cherry pie filling into the well, about 1 cherry in each cookie.


  • How To Store: I recommend placing the cookies in an airtight container and storing them at room temperature. I find that they taste best when eaten within the first two days. 
  • Regular cream cheese can be used in this recipe, however, you want to make sure it's softened and the cookies may take an additional couple of minutes to bake.
