Strawberry Cream Cheese Cookies

2 3/4 cups flour
1 cup butter
3 oz. cream cheese
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Strawberry preserves (or your favorite)

Cream butter, cream cheese and sugar together. Stir in the rest of the ingredients to make the dough. Chill over night or longer. Roll out the dough very thin and cut out cookies. I like to use a 2 1/2 inch flower cutter. Bake at 325 degrees about 8 minutes. The cookies should be just set but not browned. When the cookies are baked heat some preserves in a small pot on the stove until liquidy. Place several cookies on sheet of wax paper then drop a dollop of the preserves on top of the cookie then cover with another. Press down to spread the preserves evenly between the cookies. Allow to cool then sprinkle with powdered sugar.
