Raspberry-orange turnovers

This is a very tasty cookie. Not too sweet and very tender and small. I haven’t made these for many  years (I’m the  only one in my home who likes the raspberry filling).

(unfortunately, I have no photos…we took photos but the USB cord(s) for the cameras – both of them – are missing so we cannot upload but here’s a photo of the cookbook I used for the recipe)

This is a recipe that is adapted from Betty Crocker Best Recipes for Cookies (1989)
Serves: ~ 2½ dozen cookies


  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated orange peel
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup raspberry preserves
  • Orange Glaze (see Below)

    Orange Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated orange peel
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice from the orange


  1. Mix butter, cream cheese, orange peel, flour and salt. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour.
  2. Heat oven to 350. Roll dough ⅛ inch thick on lightly floured, cloth-covered board (it will be very stiff but will soften as you roll); cut into 2½ inch circles. Spoon about ½ teaspoon preserves onto each circle; moisten edge on half of each circle and fold dough over the preserves. Press edges together. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake until edges are light brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from baking sheet; cool. Drizzle cookies with Orange Glaze.
  3. Orange Glaze – Mix powdered sugar, grated orange peel and orange juice until smooth and of a desired consistency. Drizzled over cooled cookies.
