These little pastries are so delicious and simple to make.
A favorite Holiday cookie. The kids call these poptart cookies
8oz. cream cheese-softened
2 sticks margarine-softened
3 cups flour
Red plum jam
In a bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until fluffy.
Mix in flour by hand, until well blended and mixture forms a dough.
Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Heat oven to 350* and flour a surface for rolling.
(I had pretty good luck using cooking spray instead of flour)
Roll out dough to about 1/8 inch thick.
With a knife or pastry wheel cut dough into 2inch squares.
In the center of each square, add 1/2tsp. jam and a few walnut pieces.
fold 2 opposite corners together and pinch. Leaving the other 2 corners as they are.
place cookies on an un-greased cookie sheet.
Bake about 10 minutes or until pastry is just beginning to turn golden. Cool.
