Ingredients

6 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 pound butter, softened
2 egg yolks
4 heaping tablespoons granulated sugar
1-3/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cans (12 ounces each) Solo pastry filling (any flavors, apricot and cherry work well)
Powdered sugar, to dust (optional)

Instructions

Blend cream cheese and butter together. Add egg yolks. Mix well. Add sugar. Then add flour, baking powder and salt. Mix well. Dough will be sticky. Form into 2 balls and wrap with wax paper.

Refrigerate at least 2 hours before rolling out to cut. Remove one dough ball at a time from refrigerator. Roll to 1/4-inch thick on floured surface.

Cut with round cookie cutter. Place on ungreased cookie sheets. Top with 3/4 to 1 teaspoon pastry filling on each round.

Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar when cool, if desired.
