Wait until you have a bite of these, I’m not sure if I should call it a cookie or dessert. Whichever one it is they are delicious. My cousin made these several years ago for a family event and they’ve been on my mind ever since. It’s Strawberry month on the Fresh From Florida campaign I do so I made some large ones for it. After the first two were baked I thought why not show them both ways because options are always a good thing.

Sugar Cookies topped with a Citrus Cream Cheese. Add Strawberries and Blueberries and brush with orange marmalade.
Ingredients
Cookies
  • ⅓ cup coconut oil or shortening (I've tried both)
  • ⅓ cup butter
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
Citrus Cream Cheese
  • 8 oz. cream cheese - almost at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon milk or cream
  • ¾ cup confectioner's sugar
  • ½ teaspoons orange zest or see my notes
Assembly
  • 1 quart of Florida Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Orange Marmalade or Apricot Jelly
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease cookie sheets
  2. Add the sugar, butter and oil to a mixing bowl. Beat for 2 minutes.
  3. Add the vanilla and egg. Mix until incorporated.
  4. Add the flour, baking soda and salt. Mix well.
  5. Use a medium scoop and ball up 12 cookies. Roll, and then roll is sugar before putting on cookie sheet. Flatten with a glass.
  6. Bake for 9 - 11 minutes.
Citrus Cream Cheese
  1. Mix the cream cheese ingredients in a mixing bowl until creamy, Refrigerate 20 minutes.
To assemble cookies.
  1. Heat orange marmalade in the microwave (See notes below)
  2. Wash strawberries, cut into halves. Wash blueberries. Put both and paper towels to dry off.
  3. Pipe the cream cheese onto the cookies.
  4. Place the strawberries and blueberries on the cookies, starting at the outside edge.
  5. Brush the marmalade on the strawberries and blueberries
Notes
This recipe can easily be doubled.

I used the zest out of the orange marmalade in my citrus cream. Melt the orange marmalade in the microwave. Pour thru a small strainer to separate the zest from the jam. Stir the zest from the marmalade into the cream cheese. If the pieces look too big, give them a rough chop.
