Get started!



2/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

3 ounces cream cheese, softened

1 cup sugar

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest

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 any flavor jam


1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 to 2 tablespoons milk

How to make

  1. STEP 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. STEP 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. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 350°F. 

  4. STEP 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. STEP 5

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

  6. STEP 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.

Tip #1

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