     Jam Filled Cutout Cookies

Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   None
Servings   2 1/2 dozen
Preptime   3 hours

2/3 cup butter, soft
1 package cream cheese, soft
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup jam
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar (frosting)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-2 tablespoons milk

Combine butter and cream cheese in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add sugar, egg, lemon peel and lemon juice; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Beat until well mixed. Cover; refrigerate until firm (at least 1 hour). Heat oven to 350F. Roll out dough, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), on well-floured surface to 1/8- inch thickness. (Add additional flour to rolling surface as needed.) Cut with 2 to 3-inch cookie cutters.
To assemble cookies, spread 1/4 teaspoon jam in center of 1 cookie; top with second cookie. Gently press edges of cookies to seal. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely. Combine powdered sugar and vanilla in small bowl. Beat at low speed, adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency. Frost cooled jam-filled cookies with 1/2 teaspoon each.
