Raspberry Foldover Cookies

Raspberry Foldover Cookies



Several years ago, my extended family gathered at my cousin’s house on Thanksgiving Day. She served a wonderful dinner, but what I remember the most is a plate of cookies she set out. It was filled with a variety of homemade delights, and they were all delicious, but this one spoke to me: “Get this recipe, and get it now!” And believe me, when a cookie talks, I listen. I didn’t waste any time following its orders. I asked about the cookie and found out they were called Raspberry Foldovers. They taste like a mini raspberry pie but even better because they have cream cheese in the dough and they are dipped in powdered sugar after they are baked. Everybody loves them.  To make these, you’ll need two packages of Betty Crocker Pie Crust Mix, cream cheese, raspberry preserves, and powdered sugar.

Blend the pie crust, cream cheese, and water together.

Divide the dough in half.
Roll each half to 1/8″ thickness on a lightly floured surface.
Cut into 3-inch circles with a glass or a dough press.

These are some of the dough presses that I have.  I know I got some of mine at a dollar store several years ago, but they can also be found at amazon.com:  Dough Presses

Place a teaspoon of the preserves in the center of each. Fold over into a half circle and press edges together with the dough press. If the dough starts to stick to the dough press, just shake some flour on it or rub a little flour into one side of the dough.

If you don’t have a dough press, you can just press the dough together with your fingers so that it looks like this.

Bake on a greased cookie sheet for 10-12 minutes at 350.

Remove immediately to paper towels. When cool, roll cookies in powdered sugar.

And then watch them disappear!
