Strawberry Wedding Bell Cookies Recipe

To ring in a joyous occasion like a bridal shower or wedding, I'm often asked to make these festive cookies. You can use different flavors of jam to suit your tastes. —Laurie Messer, Bonifay, Florida
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min. YIELD:30 servings


  • 1 cup butter (no substitutes), softened
  • 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 cup strawberry jam
  • Confectioners' sugar


  • 1. In a mixing bowl, cream butter, cream cheese and sugar. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Divide dough into fourths. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until easy to handle.
  • 2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out each portion of dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with floured 2-in. round cookie cutters. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Spoon 1/4 teaspoon jam in the center and spread to within 1/4 in. of edge.

"The dough was easy to make, but at the time of baking the cookies open up, any suggestion in how to prevent this. Or any recepie sthat I can use the dough."

"I made these last night and found that the 2-in cookie cutter was too small. The cookies opened up while cooking. I ended up forming Empanadas instead, crimping the edges with a fork. They cooked much better and stayed closed! Used red plum jam instead."

"I liked working with the dough. It required 15 min. baking time, when rolled to the recommended thickness. Use ony 1/4 teas. of jam. It wants to bake out. Use a toothpick to secure before baking. Wants to pop open while baking. I'm trying to think what else I could use this dough for. There is no sugar in the dough. This could be a good base for other options. Maybe mini-chips."
