  6. Scoop in 2 tablespoonful balls and roll to smooth. Refrigerate 20 minutes until firm.
  7. Using your thumb smash a indent in the center and place your cream cheese ball inside and roll to completely cover the frosting. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.

Don’t over bake, cookies should be slightly jiggly in the center. The heat from the pan should finish baking the centers while it cools.
