Red, White and Blue Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
3 oz cream cheese; softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
36 small blueberries
36 small strawberries, ripe; hulled halved
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a mixing bowl, beat the butter with the cream cheese until well blended. Beat in the sugar and vanilla, and then stir in the flour until well mixed.
Using a 1/2 Tablespoon measure, shape the mixture into small balls and place 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
Make a small dent in the top of each cookie and carefully place a blueberry and a strawberry half, cut side down, in each indentation.
Bake cookies for 12 to 18 minutes or until very lightly browned. Cool on racks.
