This looks like it would be complicated but it's actually easy and delicious
Polish Kołlaczki

I love this cookie recipe, the cream cheese in the dough gives them an extra bite. It's also nice that you can choose what kind of jam flavors you want to add or even make your own! Just keep in mind you will have to make the dough the night before.

  • 3 Ounces cream cheese or half a package
  • 1/2 Cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 Cup sugar for dusting
  • 1/2 Cup confectioners' sugar for dusting
  • 1 can fruit jam (apricot or raspberry works well)


In an electric mixer, beat together the cream cheese and butter until light. slowly add the flour.

Once the dough has come together, form into balls and chill overnight in the refrigerator.

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. 

Dust a large area of your kitchen counter with half granulated sugar and half powdered sugar. This will prevent sticking.

Remove the dough from the fridge and roll out into a square about 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into 3 inch squares.

Add a dollop of jam in the center of the squares. The the 2 opposite corner into the middle and pinch them to seal the cookies.

Place the Kołlaczki on ungreased baking sheets and bake for 10-15 minutes .

Allow to cool and dust with powdered sugar.
