It is that wonderful, festive time of year. Though it looks a lot different this year, one thing isn’t canceled - christmas cookies!! I’m sharing our family’s favorite cookie recipe, today on the blog. I have special memories making these with my mom growing up. Their delicate sweetness is my favorite. Enjoy!

Fancy Raspberry-Filled Orange Cookies

Cookies:

  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup margarine or butter, softened
  • 1 (3 oz package) cream cheese
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange peel
  • 1 egg
  • 2 ¼ cups Pillsbury BEST All Purpose Flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl, combine sugar, butter and cream cheese; beat well. Add orange peel and egg; blend well.
  2. Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. Add flour and baking powder; mix well. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Wit thumb or handle of wooden spoon, make indentation in center of each cookie. Fill each indentation with ½ teaspoon preserves.
  3. Bake at 250 degrees for 11-13 minutes or until cookies are firm to the touch. Cool 2 minutes; removed from cookie sheets. Cool 5 minutes or until completely cooled.
