Makes: 3 dozen Total Time: 2 hr 30 min
Category: Cookies Sub Category: Other

what you need
  • 2 sticks margarine, softened
  • 6 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 can (12 oz.) fruit puree or jam or preserves
make it
In a large bowl blend margarine and cream cheese together, by hand. Slowly add flour until it is all incorporated and a dough is formed. The dough will be soft and sticky. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate until hard to the touch.

Roll out a handful of dough on a floured surface. Roll to an approximate thickness of 1/4 inch. Take a 2x3 inch diamond shaped cookie cutter and cut as many diamonds as possible. Gather and re-roll out the leftover dough. Repeat until all the dough is used.

Place the diamond cut out onto your palm. Put a 1/2 tsp. of the fruit (I use apricot and raspberry jams) into the center of the diamond. Dip your finger in a bit of water, put on one side of the diamond. Fold lengthwise and seal the tops of the cookie together to create a 3D diamond shape. Place on cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes. Watch the bottoms of the cookies, when they are golden brown, the cookies are done. Even though the tops will not look done, they are! When the cookies are cooled, sprinkle with the powdered sugar.
DO NOT use super heat or non-stick cookies sheets. They will burn the bottoms of the cookies. The cheap cookie sheets work best, just cover with parchment or foil (but do not grease).
