Ingredients

Cookie

2/3 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon peel
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup your favorite jam

Frosting

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 to 2 tablespoons milk

Directions

Combine butter and cream cheese in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add sugar, egg, lemon peel and lemon juice; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Beat until well mixed. Cover; refrigerate until firm (at least 1 hour).

Heat oven to 350°F. Roll out dough, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), on well-floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness. (Add additional flour to rolling surface as needed.) Cut with 2 to 3-inch cookie cutters.

To assemble cookies, spread 1/4 teaspoon jam in center of 1 cookie; top with second cookie. Gently press edges of cookies to seal. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely.

Combine powdered sugar and vanilla in small bowl. Beat at low speed, adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency. Frost cooled jam-filled cookies with 1/2 teaspoon each.

Recipe Tip

If desired, tint frosting with 1 to 2 drops food color.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

I loved these cookies! I used raspberry jam in the middle and got rave reviews from friends. Dough was a bit fussy to roll out, just make sure you chill for at least 1 1/2 hours and it will make it easier.
The cookies didnt look like the picture.They came out too thin and the dough taste was very bland.alot of work and very disapointed
