Jam Crescent Cookies


Jam crescent cookies, with cream cheese, sugar, sour cream, butter, and your choice of fruit preserves.


  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • pinch salt
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 3/4 cup raspberry, strawberry, or other preserves


In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, and salt. With pastry blender or 2 forks, cut in cream cheese and butter. Continue blending ingredients until mixture resembles meal. With a fork, stir in sour cream until pastry just holds together. Form pastry into a ball; wrap with waxed paper and refrigerate for an hour.

Preheat oven to 325°. Grease 2 large baking sheets. Divide dough into quarters. Keep the remaining dough refrigerated while you work with 1 portion at a time. On a floured surface roll dough portion into a 10-inch square. With 3-inch round cookie cutters, cut out rounds. Place 1 teaspoon of your choice of preserves on center of each round. Moisten edge of dough with a little water; fold dough over preserves, to make a filled crescent cookies. With a fork dipped in flour, press edges to seal. Use fork to prick top lightly. Place cookies on greased baking sheets and replace with remaining dough. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove cookies to racks to cool.
