  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 ½ cups flour
  • Strawberry Jam


  • Beat the cream cheese and butter together until smooth.
  • Add the sugar and beat 2-3 minutes, until light and fluffy
  • Add the flour and mix together until a dough starts to form.  It will be a little crumbly
  • Form the dough into a ball, wrap with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30-60 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350.  Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • On a lightly floured surface roll the dough out so that it is about ?” thick.
  • Cut the dough into 2” squares. I like to use a pizza cutter.
  • Place slightly less than half a teaspoon of jam in the middle of each square.
  • Lightly brush two opposite corners with water.  Bring the corners together and pinch tightly in the middle, above the jam.
  • Place cookies 1 inch apart on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until they are lightly browned on the edges.
  • Let the cookies sit for 5 minutes on the baking sheet and then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.


You will likely have all of these ingredients already in your pantry! Can't wait for you to try these Strawberry Pinch Cookies.
