 Ingredients List

  • 2 c Sifted all-purpose flour
  • Few grains salt
  • 1 pk (8-oz) cream cheese; at room
  • -temperature
  • 1 c Butter or margarine;


1 pk (11-oz) dried apricots
3/4 c Sugar

Sift together flour and salt. Work cream cheese and butter in a bowl until
blended. Add sifted dry ingredients and blend well. Cover and chill. Heat
oven to 350 degrees. Divide dough into small portions and roll out one
portion at a time, leaving remainder in the refrigerator. Roll one portion
on a floured board to a thickness of 1/8 inch. Cut into 3-inch squares.
Place a scant tablespoon of the Apricot Filling in the center of each
square and fold two opposite corners of the dough to the center and pinch
to seal. Place cookies on ungreased cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart.
Bake 20 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned. Remove cookies from
sheets and cool on wire cake racks. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.

Apricot Filling: Chop apricots into 1/4-inch pieces and place in a
saucepan. Add just enough water to cover apricots and cook, uncovered, over
moderately low heat (about 225 degrees) until apricots are soft. Remove
from heat and stir in sugar. Makes 2-1/2 cups filling.
