S. Chokel

Serves/Makes:Makes 24 nice sized squares

  • 1/2 lb (.2 kg). butter
  • 2 cups (475 ml) flour
  • 8 oz (224 grm). cream cheese
  • 3/4 tsp (4 ml) salt
  • Raspberry Jam and Damson Plum Jam (use your favorite jam)
  • Cut the softened butter into small pieces and mix with the flour until well blended.
  • Add the cream cheese and salt; mix thoroughly.
  • Refrigrate until dough is firm.
  • Roll out the dough and cut into 2 inch to 3 inch squares (depending on how big you want them).
  • Place a tsp or so of the jam or marmalade in the center of each square.
  • Fold the corners to the center and press together.
  • Bake at 400 degrees (200 C.) until lightly browned.
My favorite fillings are Orange Marmalade, three fruit marmalade, or my very favorite of all when I have time to make it or find it in specialty gourmet shops is Peach Almond Perserves.
