  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F, and line baking sheets with parchment.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese, and sugar together on medium-high speed until very pale and fluffy (about 5 minutes).

  3. Beat in the vanilla until incorporated.

  4. Add the flour and salt, mixing together on low speed until just barely combined.

  5. Scoop the dough by tablespoons, rolling each into a smooth ball and placing on the prepared baking sheets.

  6. Use the back of a measuring spoon to press a well into the center of each ball of dough.

  7. Fill the wells with jam, and bake the cookies for 10 to 12 minutes, or until set around the edges but still quite pale in color.
