These are SCRUMPTIOUS! What is better than cream cheese and a good soft cookie combine!! Be careful, you probably won’t be able to eat just one!!
How to make Strawberry Cream Cookies
What you need:
1 cup of butter, softened
1 package (3 ounces) of cream cheese, softened
1 cup of sugar
1 egg yolk
3 teaspoons of vanilla extract
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
seedless strawberry jam
What to do:
In a large bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolk and vanilla. Add flour and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets (I like to line them with parchment paper). Using the end of a wooden spoon handle (or clean finger), make ½ inch deep indentation in the center of each ball (see picture); fill with jam.
Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until set.
Remove to wire racks and cool.
