  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease cookie sheets.
  2. Using a pastry blender or food processor, cut butter into cream cheese.
  3. In a small bowl, sift dry ingredients together except for confectioners' sugar.
  4. Work dry ingredients into butter/cream cheese mixture until you have an even, mealy texture.
  5. Knead to form a stiff dough. If the dough gets too soft, refrigerate for about five minutes before continuing.
  6. Roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness.
  7. Using a cookie cutter or glass, cut into about 3 inch diameter cookies. Keep re-rolling dough until you have used it all. Use your thumb to make a depression in each cookie. Place a 1/2 teaspoon of filling in the depression.
  8. Bake for about 20 minutes (until lightly golden). Let cool on a cookie rack. Dust lightly with confectioners' sugar. Store in an airtight container

EVERYONE LOVED THEM...THEY ARE NOT TOO SWEET BUT JUST RIGHT.A TRUE CROWD PLEASER.

The dough was very easy to work with not sticky or hard like I find with so many other recipes.

Fast, simple, light and favorful! I suggest you double the recipe and have a variety of fillings available as these disappear fast.
