"This recipe was given to me by my mom-in-law. The natural preserves provide the flavor. Store these cookies covered in refrigerator, because of the cream cheese."

  1. Place cream cheese in a mixing bowl, and beat til light and fluffy. Add the rest of the ingredients, except for the fruit preserves, and form into a flat disk. Chill overnight.
  2. Roll dough out onto a lightly floured board, and cut circles using a medium sized glass.
  3. In the center of each circle, add 1/2 teaspoon of preserves; crimp edges tightly together. Natural preserves have a tendency to spill out due to the lower sugar content, but still make a great cookie.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 15 to 17 minutes.
