Cream butter and cream cheese together until fluffy. Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. gradually blend into butter mixture. Stir in eggs. Blend well. chill at least two hours. or until firm.
Divide dough in half. On Floured board, roll out each half to ¼ inch thickness. Cut into circles using a two inch cookie cutter. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Make a small indentation in center of each cookie and fill with jam. Bake in moderate oven (375 deg F.) for about 15 minutes.
or until golden. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
Note: I have used peanut butter in the center. and when I was short of cream cheese, I used 3 ounces of peanut butter with a jam center. not traditional by any means, but my kids liked it. Lei, Bronx, NY USA Recipe Archive - 5 August 96
