How do I make it ?
Heat oven to 350ºF.
Combine flour and baking soda. Beat cream cheese, butter, granulated sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add flour mixture; mix well. Refrigerate 30 min.
Roll dough into 1/8-inch thickness on lightly floured surface. Use 4-inch chick-shaped cookie cutter to cut dough into 42 shapes, rerolling dough as necessary. Place, 2 inches apart, on parchment-covered baking sheets.
Bake 10 to 12 min. or until edges begin to brown. Cool on baking sheet 5 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
Whisk icing sugar and water until blended. Stir in food colouring. Spread onto cookies. Add silver dragée to each cookie for the chick's eye. Let stand 1 hour or until icing is firm.
