Cheesecake Cookies

1 C Butter
4 oz Cream Cheese
1 C Sugar
1 Egg
1 tsp. grated lemon rind
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 ¼ C flour
1 tsp. baking powder
¼ C fine graham cracker crumbs

Cheese Filling:
4 oz cream cheese
2 Tbsp. Sugar
½ tsp. grated lemon rind
1 egg yolk
1 Tbsp half-and-half, milk or sour cream
• Mix all the cheese filling ingredients together while cookie dough is chilling.

1. Cream butter, cream cheese and sugar until blended. Add egg, lemon rind and lemon juice. Mix well.
2. Combine flour and baking powder. Add to first mixture and blend well. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour.
3. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll in graham cracker crumbs. Arrange on ungreased baking sheets. (I let them sit for about 5 minutes to soften a little)
4. Make an indentation with your thumb in center of each cookie. Fill with approx ½ teaspoonful of cheese filling.
5. Bake at 350 for approx 20 minutes. Cool on wire racks. Store airtight.
