Low-Point Kolocky (or Thumbprint) Cookies

If you're Polish, you're probably very familiar with these delicious "Kolocky" cookies. If you're not Polish, you're probably very familiar with these delicious "Thumbprint" cookies! :)  Either way, these cookies are very simple to make, very low-point, and the type of cookie you can make as "sweet" as you desire.

Kolocky or Thumbprint Cookies
- 1/2 cup butter (I used Land O Lakes Light Canola butter)
- 1 cup flour
- 3 oz. fat free cream cheese
- Any flavor fruit spread (A sugar free Red Raspberry fruit spread was used for this batch).
Mix butter, flour, and cream cheese in a mixer. Roll out on flour board, thinner than cutout cookies, thicker than paper. Cut out little circles and place on cookie sheet. Make a small indent in the center and add a small teaspoon of any flavor fruit spread in the center. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until the bottom is light golden. Sprinkle with a little powdered sugar if you desire a little more sweetness. If you'd like a printer-friendly version of this recipe, Click Here.
