CHEAT DAY!! Cream Cheese Cookies.

My all-time favorite Christmas cookies! This recipe was passed down through generations and they are the yummiest!

2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 lb butter
1/2 lb cream cheese
Jam/preserves of your choice (I use raspberry)
Powdered sugar


Set oven to 375 degrees. Allow cream cheese and butter to soften; add sugar and cream until fluffy. Sift flour and baking powder together; then add to butter mixture. Form mixture into a ball, wrap in wax paper or plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Roll out onto a floured board and cut into 2-inch squares; (cookie shapes need to be able to fold over) Fill with your choice of flavored jam and fold over. (Do not fill cookies with too much jam, you could end up with a mess.. not good) Seal the cookies by pressing down on the edges. Place cookies on parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake until lightly brown.

Dust with powdered sugar and ENJOY! 🖤
