Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup strawberry jam
  • Confectioners' sugar

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Divide dough into fourths. Cover and refrigerate until easy to handle, about 2 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 375° On a lightly floured surface, roll out each piece of dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with floured 2-in. round cookie cutters. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Spoon 1/2 teaspoon jam in the center and spread to within 1/4 in. of edge.
  3. Shape into a bell by folding edges of dough to meet over filling. Bake until lightly browned, 8-10 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool. Dust with confectioners' sugar.
