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.
We've made this recipe for years, and have always enjoyed it! It's one of our favorite cookies, looks and tastes great. I'm glad to have found it again!
