Featured Pinch Tips Video
- 9 oz
- cream cheese, room temperature
- 2 c
- butter, softened
- 4 c
- all purpose flour
- strawberry, apricot, or raspberry jam
- powdered sugar
1Cream the cheese and butter. Add flour. Mix thoroughly.
Roll to 1/5" thick on board dusted with powdered sugar. Cut into 2" circles with cookie cutter. Fold bottom right edge of cookie toward center. Do the same with bottom left edge of cookie, overlapping the 2 edges. This will form a lily shape; round on top, pointed at the bottom, sort of like a fan. Bake 6-7 minutes @ 375* on an ungreased sheet. These will puff up significantly while baking. Do NOT let them brown on the bottom! Remove to a wire rack, let cool. Fill the fan end of the cookie with your flavor choice of jam and dust with powdered sugar. Then just let them melt in your mouth. They do not freeze well, but they'll be gone before you know it anyway! To store...non air tight container. do not fill with jam or dust with powdered sugar until you are ready to eat.
