Raspberry Turnover Cookies

Total Time
Prep 16 mins
Cook 14 mins

The grocery I use stopped carrying these cookies that my husband just loves. This is my attempt to replicate them.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Sift the dry ingredients together (I used a dried orange peel, so it was sifted with my other dry ingredients).
  3. Using a pastry blender, cut the margarine and cream cheese into the dry ingredients (like a pie crust).
  4. Sprinkle the milk onto this mixture, mix and gather into a ball.
  5. On a lightly a floured surface, roll to 1/8" thickness.
  6. Use a 2" or 3" cutter to make 16-18 rounds.
  7. Spoon 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons jelly onto the center of each round (don't use too much or it will "bleed out" when baking).
  8. Fold the cookie over and bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 12-14 minutes (oven time may be less-- I used a toaster oven).

These are great. Rolling stuff out sucks but I make the effort every Christmas! My families favourite!
