Cream Cheese Thumbprint Cookies http://www.davita.com/recipes/desserts/cream-cheese-thumbprint-cookies/a/4878

A pretty, old-fashioned cookie with simple ingredients is a welcome addition to any food cupboard, wouldn’t you agree? It’s also a smart way to control what you eat while saving money. Let’s face it, snacks from the store come with unwanted additives, loaded with sugar and salt. A quick-thinking DaVita dietitian from North Dakota named Jackie, saw the need for a cookie that satisfied the taste buds while taking it easy on the stuff that torpedoes a food plan. She came up with Cream Cheese Thumbprint Cookies.  A home-baked cookie beats store-bought any day!
