    Title: Berry-Cream Cookie Snaps
    Categories: Cookies, Fruits, Dairy, Cheese
    Yield: 24 servings

    4 oz Cream cheese; softened
    1/4 c Sugar
    2 tb Seedless strawberry jam
    1/4 c Heavy whipping cream;
    - whipped
    1 (to 3) drops red food
    - coloring; opt

    1/2 c Sugar
    1/3 c A-P flour
    1/8 ts Salt
    2 lg Egg whites; room temp
    1/4 ts Vanilla extract
    1/4 c Butter; melted, cooled
    Chopped fresh strawberries;
    - opt

    Set oven @ 400ºF/205ºC.

    Beat cream cheese, sugar and jam until blended. Fold in
    whipped cream and, if desired, food coloring.

    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 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 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
    filling to bag. After filling shells, dip ends of
    cookies into chopped strawberries if desired.

    Refrigerate leftovers.
