Lily Cookies

In honor of our first-born granddaughter, the dynamic and beautiful Liliana Grace, i'm planning to try this cookie recipe that I first found online in 2008...



  • 4-1/2 oz. Cream cheese
  • 1 C. Butter
  • 2 C. Flour, sifted
  • Jam or Marmalade
  1. Preheat oven to 375*F
  2. Cream together cheese, butter, and flour.
  3. Form dough into a ball.
  4. Roll out thinly on a lightly floured surface.
  5. Cut 2" circles.
  6. Pinch together the bottom two side of each circle to form a Lily or cornucpoia shape.
  7. Fill open end of each Lily with a small amount of jam and place on cookie sheet.
  8. Bake at 375* for 15 minutes
  9. Cool completely
  10. Sprinkle with powdered sugar

Makes 5 dozen.


Hint: can sprinkle finely chopped nuts on jam filling before baking.
