Victorian Cookies

Why not? They are terrific and you just might cause a renewal of this. Everyone will absolutely love them.


  • 3 pkg. Philadelphia cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 tsp. grated fresh lime rind
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • Apricot Preserves  (try Saskatoon Preserves for a different flavour)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Cream together the cream cheese and butter until very smooth and light.  Beat in the lime rind.

Combine the flour and sugar; stir in one half of the flour mixture blending well.  Stir in the remaining flour.

Roll dough onto a lightly floured board to about 1/8″ thick (any thicker than this and they will fall apart when baking).

Cut into 2″ rounds and place 1/2 tsp of the preserves in the center of each round.  Form into a triangle by folding in 3 sides.  Pinch together gently and bake for about 12-14 minutes.  Cool the cookies a few minutes before removing them to a rack to cool completely.

If you don’t eat them all, store in a tin.
