    Categories: Cookies, Cheese, Chocolate
    Yield: 24 servings

    1 c Unsalted butter, softened
    1/2 c Sugar
    1 lg Egg yolk; room temp
    1 ts Vanilla extract
    1/2 ts Red paste food coloring
    2 c A-P flour
    2 tb Baking cocoa
    1/2 c Coarse sugar

    4 oz Cream cheese; softened
    1/4 c Sugar
    1 lg Egg white; room temp
    1/2 ts Vanilla extract
    1/4 ts Kosher salt

    Set oven @ 300ºF/150ºC.

    In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and
    fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Beat in egg yolk, vanilla and food
    coloring. In another bowl, whisk flour and cocoa;
    gradually beat into creamed mixture. Shape into 1 balls;
    roll in coarse sugar. Place 2" apart on parchment-lined
    baking sheets. Press a deep indentation in center of
    each with the back of a 1/2-teaspoon measuring spoon.

    Bake 10 minutes. Meanwhile, for filling, beat cream
    cheese, sugar, egg white, vanilla and salt until
    blended. Reshape indentations in parbaked cookies as
    needed. Add 1 teaspoon filling to each cookie. Bake
    until filling is set, 10-12 minutes longer. Remove to
    wire racks to cool completely.
