Strawberry Roll Cookies

If you are a regular reader you know that I LOVE the library. And because I love the library and we visit the library at least once a week. My kids have also developed a love for the library which I really love. Because for a kid you can learn how to do all sorts of amazing things from books at the library. For example, my son made a new year resolution to be more crafty. He has checked out literally over 100 different craft books to learn and create new crafts. And my daughter has been checking out lots of kids cookbooks lately. Which is where we got the inspiration for these Strawberry Roll Cookies.

My daughter LOVES sweets so she has been checking out lots of dessert based kid cookbooks from the library. So that we can make lots of yummy desserts together. One of the books that she checked out was Super Simple Healthy Cookies Easy Cookie Recipes for Kids! by Alex Kuskowski. There was a recipe for Raspberry Swirls that we modified to create this cookie recipe. Actually, there were some intentional modifications like changing the flavor and leaving out the nuts. And then there was a mistake of not freezing the cookies before cutting. Luckily, not freezing the cookies before we cut them didn’t make them any less delicious (a little messy…but still very delicious). They were so pretty I couldn’t resist trying one. They are really good, I especially like it that they are not too sweet since there is no sugar in the dough.


Strawberry Roll Cookies


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup strawberry jam
  1. Beat butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer in a large bowl. Then add vanilla, flour, and salt and continue mixing until all ingredients are mixed together.
  2. Place dough on a layer of plastic wrap and press dough into a flat rectangle. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  4. Roll dough into a 14 inch by 10 inch rectangle using a rolling pin (or the best that you can manage 🙂 ours wasn’t perfect). Then spread the strawberry jam evenly on the dough.
  5. Starting at a short end roll the dough up.                    
  6. Cover baking sheet with parchment paper(optional, but it will make for an easy clean up). Then cut the dough into 1-inch slices (this part is a little messy). Strawberry Roll CookiesPlace slices on baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Let cookies cool before eating.

    Okay, so I was already all in when I saw these cookies on Instagram. BUUUT I didn’t know there was cream cheese, YUM!! There are some things in life you have to splurge for and cream cheese is one of them for me, despite being about 85-ish percent dairy-free.
    Cheers to library love!!

      I try to be dairy free too, but it’s nice to treat yourself to some dairy every now and then. This was a great splurge ☺

    I’ve never had strawberry Rolled Cookies, these look darn tasty Sonya 🙂 I love that the kids helped make them. I had a kid cookbook while I was growing up and it sparked my interest and love for cooking.

      Both of my kids like to help out in the kitchen. And I love it because I want them both to enjoy cooking when they are older.
