Although these bars are Christmas-party pretty, they're really good any time of year. In fact, I always double the recipe cause they're such a hit with my husband and six children. Even then, I never have any left over.—Melinda McConnell, Flint, Michigan

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (18 ounces) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 jar (12 ounces) strawberry preserves

Directions

  1. Cut cookie dough into 25 slices. Arrange side by side in an ungreased 13x9-in. baking pan. Pat together to close gaps. Bake at 375° for 18-20 minutes or until lightly browned and edges are firm to the touch.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Spread preserves over warm crust. Carefully spread cream cheese mixture evenly over preserves.
  3. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars. Refrigerate leftovers.

    I really enjoyed how easy these were to make! I didn't have any sugar cookie dough on hand, so I madey own crust, but they still didn't last long in my house!
