Traditional Eastern European holiday dessert. A simple pastry filled with a variety of fruit jellies and jams, and baked to a wonderful golden brown. I added some spice to the dough for more flavor. Happy holidays, I hope you like it.
2 cups flour
2 sticks butter
6 ounces cream cheese
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ginger
3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 cup apricot jam
1/4 cup apple butter
1/4 cup Erin’s Elderberry’s elderberry jelly
1/4 cup whatever jelly you want to use
Preheat oven to 400.
In bowl 1 mix butter and cream cheese until smooth.
In bowl 2 mix flour, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg.
Slowly beat in flour mixture into the butter mixture.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Roll out dough into 1/8 inch and cut 3 x 3 squares.
Add a teaspoon of jelly in center of squares.
Fold over 2 opposite corners and pinch together.
Slightly fold over two remaining corners to block jelly from running out.
Bake for 17-22 minutes until golden brown.
Let cool and dust with powdered sugar.
