  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.

Wow, these are fantastic! I kinda got obsessed about trying to make sure the jelly didn't leak out during baking--at least at first. Then, I realized it didn't matter. If you almost immediately ...

Everyone loved these. I recommend chilling the dough before rolling out and filling to avoid a sticky mess. I used blackberry jam to fill them, and they turned out absolutely delicious.

I love these cookies! they were simple to make, and everyone loved them.I filled them with raspberry and apricot filling that I picked up at my local bakery.

This was worth the time & effort to make these little pastries! Not being sure of how they would turn out (they were added to my annual Christmas cookie list) not having any sugar in the recipe...

These weren't that great. I only made half the recipe and had to add more flour because it was too sticky. I also added more sugar to dough. I filled it with my homemade cherry jam which was ...
