Cream Cheese Cookies With Preserves

Category: Valentine's Day, Thanksgiving, New Years, Cookies, Jams & Preserves, Desserts, Christmas, Easter, Holiday

 Ingredients List

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 8 ounces bar cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 1/2 cups jam, jelly or preserves


1. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, and salt. Using an electric mixer, mix in the cream cheese and butter, blending the ingredients until combined (do not over-mix).

2. Divide dough into 3 portions; flatten each into a disk. Roll each disk to an 1/8-inch thickness between sheets of parchment. Stack dough (still in parchment) on a baking sheet and refrigerate for an hour

3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees, with racks in upper and lower thirds.

4. Mix egg yolk with 1/2 teaspoon water. Working with 1 dough sheet at a time, peel off parchment (save for baking). With a 2 1/2-inch round or 2-inch star-shaped cookie cutter, cut out cookies. Spoon 1/2 teaspoon jam into center of each and brush exposed dough with egg wash. Shape cookies, then arrange on the baking sheet, 2 inches apart. Keep the remaining dough refrigerated while you work with 1 portion at a time.

5. Bake until cookies are light golden brown, about 15 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Let cool completely on wire racks.
(To store, cover and keep at room temperature, up to 4 days.)
