Peaches and Cream Cookies

Every year I host a Christmas Baking Exchange at my house.  It's always fun, a little crazy, and we all end up with an amazing selection of baking treats!  This year we had a great variety of treats, including butter tarts, Candy Cane Skor bars, and White Chocolate Cherry Shortbread.

For my contribution, I decided to go with Peaches and Cream Cookies.  A few years ago one of my friends made some cream cheese cookies for the exchange which were to die for, and this recipe spoke to me as one to try, because of the cream cheese.  Here is the recipe:

Peaches and Cream Cookies (Source: Taste of Home Best Loved Cookies & Bars)

1 cup butter, softened
1 package (3 oz) cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups flour
Peach Jam

Cream the butter, cream cheese and sugar together in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy.  Beat in egg yolk and vanilla.  Add the flour and mix well.  Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350.

Shape dough into 1 inch balls.  Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.  Using the end of a wooden spoon handle, make a 1/2 inch deep indentation in the centre of the ball.  Fill the indentation with about a 1/4 teaspoon of peach jam. 

Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until set.  Remove to wire racks to cool.

These were a tasty little cookie.  I love cream cheese cookies.  I could have used more of the jam with the cookie though, so next time I will make a bigger indentation and add more jam.  I shared these with my Grandparents, and my Grandma reported that my Grandpa was particularly fond of them - yay!  Another winner :-)
