6 Delicious Christmas Cookie Recipes

Raspberry Treasures

Light and flaky, these delicate fruit-filled cookies have the look of petite and elegant pastries. We like them with a spot of raspberry or apricot filling — and a cup of Christmas tea.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup raspberry filling
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon water

    How to make it 


  • 1

    In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and cream cheese. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour and salt; add to creamed mixture. Divide dough in half; wrap each portion in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.

  • 2

    On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 3-in. round cookie cutter. Place 1 teaspoon raspberry filling in the center of each. Bring three edges together over filling, overlapping slightly (a small amount of filling will show); pinch edges gently. In a small bowl, beat egg and water; brush over dough.

    Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 1 minute before removing to wire racks. Yield: 2 dozen.
