1
large Land O Lakes® Egg
1 teaspoon
freshly grated lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon

2 cups
all-purpose flour

2/3 cup
any flavor jam

Frosting

1 1/2 cups

Directions

  1. Combine butter and cream cheese in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add sugar, egg, lemon zest, and lemon juice; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Beat at low speed until well mixed. Cover; refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
  2. 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.
  3. Heat oven to 350°F. 
  4. 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.
  5. Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely.
  6. 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.

I have been making these every Christmas for many years and my nieces BEG for them! These are NOT easy to make, but they are delicious and well worth the effort. Need to add a little extra lemon zest to the dough. A few tips: chill the dough overnight, use the best quality jelly you can find, and use a small cookie cutter without a lot of detail. (The cookies are tastier when they are smaller, and the dough is very soft, so lots of detail bakes out. )

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.
