1/2 lb butter
2 cups flour
8 oz cream cheese
3/4 tsp salt
Your favorite jam

Serves/Makes:Makes 24 nice sized squares


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 F 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.
