Venango County Recipe of the Day: Berry-Cream Cookie Snaps – Sponsored by Top Tier Federal Credit Union.

These cute cookies are crispy on the outside and light and fluffy inside!


4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons seedless strawberry jam
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped
1 to 3 drops of red food coloring, optional

1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 large egg whites, room temperature
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
Chopped fresh strawberries, optional


-Preheat oven to 400°. Beat cream cheese, sugar, and jam until blended. Fold in whipped cream and, if desired, food coloring. Refrigerate.

-For batter, whisk sugar, flour, and salt; stir in egg whites and vanilla until smooth. Whisk in butter until blended. Line baking sheets with parchment. Preparing 4 cookies at a time, drop batter by 1-1/2 teaspoonfuls 4 in. apart onto prepared pans. Bake until edges are lightly browned, 5-8 minutes.

-Loosen each cookie and curl it around a wooden spoon handle. Press lightly to seal; hold until set, about 20 seconds. Transfer to waxed paper to cool. Repeat with remaining cookies. If cookies become too cool to shape, return to oven for 1 minute to soften.

-Just before serving, spoon the filling into cookie shells. Or pipe it by cutting a small hole in the tip of a pastry bag and inserting a star tip, then transferring the filling to the bag. After filling the shells, dip the ends of the cookies into chopped strawberries if desired. Refrigerate leftovers.
