Have you every bought or received a package of Sugar Cookie Mix?
And weren't to happy with the results?
Well I have a recipe for you to use that store bought mix, that will make you WANT to go buy another package! Ha, ha....no really!
You will need the following:
1 pouch (1 lb. 1.5 oz) of Sugar cookie Mix
1/3 C. margarine melted
2 TBSP flour
2 (8oz.) packages of cream cheese; soften
3/4 C. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla or almond extract
3/4 c. Strawberry spreadable jam (no chunks of fruit)
Preheat oven to 375
In bowl combine cookie mix, margarine, flour, and 1 egg. Mix until soft dough forms. Then press into a 9x13 sprayed pan. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Set aside to cool for 15 minutes.
In a mixing bowl beat cream cheese, sugar, extract, and 2 eggs until smooth.
Pour filling over cooled crust, place the fruit spread in a baggie and cut off a corner. "Pipe" 3 lines of filling over top. Then "pull" a knife through each line in opposite direction making a swirl pattern.
Return to oven and bake again for another 25-30 minutes or until set.
Refrigerate until chilled. (at least 2 hrs.) Cut into bars and serve.
Store in refrigerator.
