Another Christmas new recipe.  This was a tasty cookie, though I don't think it will earn a permanent spot on the line up.  It may show up a surprise every now and then though.  It was a tender cookie and the nutella filled was very good.  I made blackberry and raspberry filled as well. 

adapted from


  • 6 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 c. confectioner's sugar
  • 2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup any flavor fruit jam or nutella
  • 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar for decoration
  • 1 tsp vanilla or almond extract


  1. Mix cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add flour and sugar slowly until well blended. Shape into a ball and chill overnight or for several hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Roll dough out 1/8 inch thick on a floured pastry board. Cut into 2 1/2 inch squares and place 1/2 tsp (approx) of jam or preserves. Overlap opposite corners and pinch together. Place on ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool. Sprinkle lightly with confectioner's sugar.
