Ingredients that you will need to Prepare Your Food.

3/4 cup butter or margarine — softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
12 drops yellow food color
1 egg
1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese — softened
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 dozen (about) large semisweet chocolate chips

Cooking Directions:

Beat the butter and the sugar and the vanilla and the food color and the egg and lastly cream cheese in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon. Next, stir in the flour. Cover and refrigerate about 2 hours or until firm. Next heat your oven to 375º. and shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Next place about 2 inches apart on a ungreased cookie sheet. Next make 3 cuts with scissors in the top of each ball about three-fourths of the way through to make 6 wedges (Cut balls from top into 6 wedges about 3/4 way through dough.). Spread wedges apart slightly to form flower petals (your cookies will flatten as they bake).

Once in the oven:

Bake your cookies for about 10 to 12 minutes or until set and the edges begin to brown.
Immediately press 1 chocolate chip in center of each cookie and then remove cookies from your cookie sheet to a wire rack.

Once you are complete with the steps sit down at your kitchen table and enjoy eating these delicious cookies with a big tall glass of milk.
