My sister Judy makes these only at Christmas so they've become a "special"
cookie. She doubles the recipe and makes it 5 times in order to have enough for
4 ounces cream cheese
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter (no substitutes)
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
Mix flour and sugar together in large bowl. Cut butter and cream cheese into
flour mixture until it resembles the size of peas. Knead together until it forms
Chill for 1 hour.
Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
Divide dough in half. On lightly floured surface, roll out to 1/8 inch thickness.
Cut 2-inch round circles and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Put 1/4 teaspoon preserves
slightly off center of each circle. Fold over and seal edges with water.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden.
