Shortbread Cookies

1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup (2 sticks) stick margarine, softened
1/4 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
22 candied red and green cherries, halved
2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar

Using a wooden spoon, cream together the cheese, margarine and
sugar. Stir in the vanilla. Add the flour and stir well. The
mixture should be fairly firm, but refrigerating the dough for an
hour or so makes for easier handling.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Shape about 2 teaspoons of the
dough into a ball and place balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased
baking sheet. Place a cherry half, cut side down, in the center
of each and press gently. Bake in the center of the oven 10 to
12 minutes, or until firm. You don't want the cookies to get too
brown. Cool on wire racks and sieve the confectioners'sugar over
them. Makes about 3 1/2 dozen cookies.

Variation: Use chocolate morsels, nuts or gumdrops instead of
cherries.
