Jam Strip Cheesers (Cream Cheese Cookies)

Filed under: Baking,Dessert — Tags: — Kate @ 5:40 pm

My mom makes these cream cheese cookies and I love love love love love love love them.  Here’s how we make them:

2 cups of flour

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp baking powder

3/4 cup margarine

3 oz. cream cheese

Preheat to 350.  Let the margarine/cream cheese soften while you mix the dry ingredients.  Put dry in wet, mix to get a flaky, powdery batter.  Roll into balls, put a thumbprint in each on an ungreased cookie sheet, fill with jam, bake 20-25 minutes or until they golden a bit, then shake some powdered sugar over them.  My favourites!

Here’s the scan from an old recipe book of my mother’s.

and here’s a picture of what they are not supposed to look like (because we don’t follow the recipe):
