Serves: 30
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 and ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Thick jam, such as apricot
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix butter and cream cheese together in a medium bowl until fluffy. Beat in vanilla extract.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine flour and salt. Add to butter and cream cheese mixture in fourths, blending well after each addition. Chill dough until easy to handle.
  4. Once dough is chilled, roll dough to ⅜th inch thickness on floured surface. Cut out 2-inch circles (or other shapes). Place on ungreased baking sheets. Make a "thumbprint" about ¼ inch deep in each cookie (I just use my thumb, but the back of a spoon would also work.) Fill each cookie thumbprint with jam.
  5. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes until delicately browned on edges.
