Whether you’re a seasoned baker or just starting out, this recipe is perfect for you. So, roll up your sleeves and let’s get baking!


  • 3 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 stick salted butter, softened
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for flouring
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons jam of your choice
  • powdered sugar for dusting (optional)


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, butter, flour, vanilla extract, and granulated sugar until smooth. If you have a food processor, you can also pulse the ingredients together until well combined.
  2. Roll the dough into a ball and cover it with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or even overnight if you can. This will allow the dough to firm up.
  3. Preheat your oven to 350˚F (175°C).
  4. Sprinkle some flour on your work surface. Take out half of the dough from the refrigerator and roll it out to a thickness of about 1/4 inch. Cut the dough into approximately 2 1/2-inch squares, making around 12 squares from this batch. Don’t worry if the dough is soft, it’s supposed to be that way.
  5. Place the squares onto a lined jelly roll pan. In the center of each square, add a generous dollop of your favorite jam. You can even use different flavors of jam or preserves for variety.
  6. Fold over two corners of each square to meet in the middle, creating a lovely triangular shape. Repeat this process with the remaining dough and jam. If you have any spare dough left, simply roll it out and make more squares.
  7. Bake each sheet of cookies for 15-18 minutes, or until they turn golden brown.
  8. Once baked, allow the cookies to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack. Let them cool completely for about 1 hour. For an extra touch, you can sprinkle some powdered sugar on top using a sieve before serving.

Now, sit back, relax, and enjoy these delightful cream cheese jam cookies with a cup of tea or coffee. They are perfect for sharing with friends, bringing to parties, or simply treating yourself to a delicious homemade dessert. Have fun and happy baking!
