CREAM CHEESE GEMS - COOKIES
Cream Cheese Gems - Cookies
These are a "shortbread" type cookie. You can make them plain or sprinkled with sanding sugar if you wish. Another recipe from Miss Dixon, 8th grade Home Ec. She had us make them with homemade strawberry preserves. My favorites are mincemeat, lemon curd and bitter orange marmalade. OPTIONS: You can add zest from an orange or lemon to butter and cream cheese for a nice light flavor. A nice topping is 2C powered sugar, 1.5 T rum, enough milk to thin. Put in a zip lock bag and snip the tiniest corner. Drizzle on warm cookies.
