I have made these many times....I found the recipe in the Pillsbury Best Cookies Cookbook. Try using different jams for variety...these are EXCELLENT cookies.
Yhis is a very yummy cookie,I did exactly as your recipe called for. I used apricot and prune solo fillings,they were soooo good.I love the taste of cream cheese. Thank you for a great cookie.Rose of sharon
Thank you for these gorgeous little gems!!!! I don't know how much jam I used, because I used apple sauce, orange marmalade and cherry and strawberry jam. I put about 1/2 tspn of jam in the middle. Mine was very soft, and I thought I needed to add in more flour so I added some corn starch (which is said to give a slightly more tender result) and it worked BEAUTIFULLY. As did the reduced-fat margarine and creamed cottage cheese. Sorry, I was just trying to make wickedness as healthy as possible - but nothing suffered in the taste and if anything did, I can't imagine how wonderful they would taste! These will be definite keepers for special occasions. The result was tender but not overpoweringly rich, delicate and sweet. Thanks once again.
