 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 lb Butter; softened
  • 6 oz Cream cheese; room temp
  • 3 c Flour
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 3/4 c Sugar
  • 2 ts Cinnamon
  • 6 tb Raisins; chopped
  • 6 tb Walnuts; chopped
  • 3/4 c Jam (apricot, strawberry, or
  • -raspberry)
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • 1 tb ;Water


Combine the butter & cream cheese & beat until well mixed. Add the flour &
salt & mix until completely blended. The dough will be easier to handle if
you wrap & chill it for about an hour. Stir together 1/2 C. sugar & the
cinnamon. Add the raisins & walnuts & toss to coat all the pieces. Preheat
oven to 375 degrees & get out some cookie sheets. Divide the dough into 6
equal parts. Keep chilled any dough you are not working on. Roll 1 of the
pieces into an 8" circle. Spread with 2 Tbsp. jam & sprinkle with 2 Tbsp.
of the sugar-raisin-nut mixture. Cut into 8 pie- shaped wedges. Beginning
at the wide end, roll toward the point, & form a crescent shape. Roll out &
form the remaining dough in the same way. Place the cookies, point side
down, about 1" apart on the ungreased cookie sheets. Mix together the egg
yolk & water & brush over the top of each cookie. Sprinkle each cookie with
a little of the remaining 1/4 C. sugar. Bake for about 15 minutes or until
lightly golden. Remove from oven & transfer to racks to cool.
