Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, blend the butter and cream cheese together. Sift together the flour, 2 tablespoons of sugar and baking powder. Stir the dry ingredients into the creamed mixture. Knead dough by hand for a few turns.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thickness. If dough is too sticky, refrigerate for 1/2 an hour. Cut dough with a round cookie cutter or the rim of a glass. Place about 1/2 teaspoon of the preserves into the center of each circle. Close cookies by folding circles in half and pressing the edges with a fork to seal. Place cookies onto an unprepared cookie sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together the remaining 1 tablespoon of sugar with the cinnamon. Roll cookies in the sugar mixture while they are still warm from the oven.

May I make a suggestion? Try filling with SOLO brand fillings instead of jelly. They have poppyseed, lecvar, apricot, nut etc....The absolute best cookie my mom made for Christmas.

These cookies are great and remind me of my Grandma's recipe. If you're having trouble rolling out the dough, be sure to use it cold. If it is refrigerated before rolling out, it won't stick to the rolling pin and will be much easier to work with.

These cookies are melt in your mouth wonderful!I used seedless, black rasberry preserves for the filling and I sprinkled them with powdered sugar before serving. They are like a delicate pastry, without all the work! Yum!
