Thanks to Judy for sharing a family favorite.. I had promised to post these after xmas.. well I guess it took a few months. Another addicting cookie, usually I just do this at Xmas .. as they’re not exactly calorie free.
8 oz pkg of cream cheese
2 sticks butter or margarine
2 cups flour
pinch of salt
Let the cheese and butter set until room temp in a large bowl.
Mix well. Add the salt and flour and mix well again.
Refrigerate for 1 hour. Roll very thin on a floured area. Cut into squares
about 2 inch square. Place about a teaspoon of filling in the center of
each square. Fold up opposite corners into a diamond shape.
Bake on ungreased sheets at 400 and watch them cause they bake fast and
should not get too brown. Remove from sheets and cool on racks.
Dust with confectioners sugar.
Cook either prunes or dried apricots with a little water and sugar. When
soft, let cool and chop them fine. Taking a can of crushed pineapple in
juice and heating it in a pan and add some sugar and use cornstarch to
thicken it until quite thick…also tastes good.
