Simple filled butter cookies with cream cheese


(3-4 dozen)


  1. Preheat oven to Cream together the butter and sugar.
  2. Add the flour and egg yolk and mix well.
  3. Add the cream cheese and mix well.
  4. Roll into balls about 5/8 inch in diameter. Place them on an ungreased cookie sheet (the cookies don't grow when baked, so they can be somewhat close together). Then press your thumb into each to flatten it and make an indentation to hold some jam. Fill it with jam.
  5. Bake at for 15 to 20 minutes.


You can use any flavor jam you like. The jam is the only part of the cookie that has any texture, so I prefer using it to jelly.

Don't eat the cookies straight from the oven, or you'll probably burn your tongue. The jam stays hotter much longer than the cookie.


Difficulty: easy, but strenuous if made by hand.
Time: 20 minutes preparation, 15-20 minutes baking.
Precision: Measure the ingredients.
