Granny’s Filled Cookies

My granny always made these around Christmas. They are the easiest, best tasting cookies around. Be warned, they are addictive.

Original recipe makes 4 dozen


3 cups all-purpose flour
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup butter, softened
12 ounces any flavor fruit jam


  1. Mix cream cheese and butter well in large bowl until well blended and creamy.
  2. Add in flour slowly, beating well after each addition. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and wrap well in cellophane. Store in fridge overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  4. Roll out dough balls flat and place a 1/2 teaspoon full of the jam in the center. Fold sides over and place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  5. Bake for 13-15 minutes until brown and the jam starts to bubble hard. Cool for 3 minutes and place on cooling rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
