Strawberry Cream Cookies

Here's a new cookie recipe I've found. So so good!

Strawberry Cream Cookies

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
seedless strawberry jam (I used lemon and lime curd instead)

In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, sugar,and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolk and vanilla. Add flour and blend. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or longer until dough is easy to handle.

Shape dough into 1in balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Using a wooden spoon handle, press a hole in center of each cookie; fill with 1/4 teaspoon jam. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until set. Cool on wire racks.
