Step 1

Preheat oven to 325°F.

Cream butter and sugar together; add cream cheese and mix until well incorporated.

Add flour (2 cups for a more delicate cookie, 2 1/2 cups for a firmer, chewier cookie).

Shape into one inch balls and place on your cookie sheet, 2 inches apart.

Using the end of a wooden spoon, or your finger, make an indentation about halfway into the dough.

Fill the holes with preserves.

Bake for around 20 minutes, until just beginning to brown.

Remove to wire rack to cool, and dust with powdered sugar.
