Delicious cookies. The cream cheese makes the dough soft and stay soft after baking. The sweetness is subtle and the lemon/jam tartness is lovely with the light taste of the cream cheese. As many reviewers have said, this is a subtle cookie, not a screemingly sweet bold cookie. The lemon zest and apricot preserves are the major flavorings of this cookie. Use good quality flour, zest your lemon properly (avoid the pith), and use good quality jam and you won't be disappointed. Additions that I've found work are using bit of almond extract with raspberry jam. A warning about the dough: as you finish the dough and roll them for the baking sheet, the dough will look fluffy and "too soft". Resist the urge to add more flour. The dough is perfect.
