The best part about these cookies is that are cute and little and just the right size.  They are made with a delicious butter cookie and the cherry pie filling gives it a burst of flavor.  And the cherry baked into the center reminded me of taking a bite of cherry pie.  Of course the white chocolate glaze on top gives it the perfect finishing touch.
