  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Beat cream cheese, butter and granulated sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Separate 1 of the eggs; set egg white aside for later use. Add yolk, second (whole) egg and vanilla to cream cheese mixture; mix well. Gradually add combined flour and baking powder, beating until well blended after each addition.
  • Divide dough into four equal pieces. Roll each piece into 12x1-inch log; place, 2 inches apart, on large ungreased baking sheet. Use handle of wooden spoon or fingers to make depression down length of each log, about 1/2 inch wide and 1/2 inch deep. Beat reserved egg white with fork; brush over dough. Sprinkle with walnuts. Warm jam in microwave on HIGH 1 min. Fill depressions with jam, using about 3 Tbsp. jam in each log.
  • Bake 25 to 27 min. or until edges are lightly browned. Transfer to wire racks; cool slightly. Sprinkle with icing sugar. Cut each log into 12 diagonal slices.


Substitute your favourite flavour of Kraft Pure Jam!


Butter is the preferred choice in this recipe for true buttery flavour, but you can also prepare the recipe with non-hydrogenated margarine. Stock up when butter is on sale and freeze it in its original wrapper placed in a freezer-weight resealable bag for up to 4 months.

    Liked these! Warm they're good too! I used my own freezer jam, and put more icing sugar than called for on top. For those of you who didn't think they were sweet enough, this sure helped!

    Dough wasn't sweet enough. Took longer to bake than what was written. I think it would taste better if you mixed fresh sliced strawberries to the jam as the jam liquifies when cooking.
