So simple. So good.

1 cup butter, room temperature

1/4 cup sugar

2 1/2 cups flour

1 cup jam

Powdered sugar for dusting


Preheat oven to 350.

Cream together cream cheese, butter and sugar until fluffy and blended.

Gradually beat in flour until crumbly dough forms.

Form into a ball and transfer to floured work surface.

Roll out to about ⅛” thickness.

Cut into 2″ squares.

Place about ⅓ teaspoon of jam in middle of each square.

Pull up two diagonal corners or each square and pinch together in the middle.

Tranfer to prepared sheet leaving about an inch in between each.

Bake for 12-14 minutes or until lightly browned.

Leave on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before moving to wire rack to cool.
