Cream Cheese Thumbprint Cookies

Serves 6-8.


½ lb. butter, unsalted

½ lb. cream cheese

2 cups flour

1 jar la Madeleine Strawberry Jam

1 jar la Madeleine Blackberry Jam

Powdered sugar

Parchment paper


  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, soften the butter and cream cheese together. Using a hand mixer combine flour with butter and cream cheese mixture.
  2. Once the dough is combined, place in the refrigerator so that it becomes easier to work with.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  4. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment. Scoop 1-Tbsp portions of dough and roll between your hands to form 1-inch balls. Gently press a thumbprint into the center of each ball about 1/2-inch-deep, being careful not to crack the edges.
  5. Fill each indentation with 1 tsp of jam, then chill the cookies 15 minutes in the freezer.
  6. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Dust with powdered sugar while still warm.
