1/2pound walnuts ground

* not incl. in nutrient facts

Directions

Sift the flour and sugar together.

Work in the butter, cream cheese and egg.

Knead together.

An easy way to do this is to put the dough inside a plastic bag - much less messy!

Let the dough stand in the refrigerator overnight.

About a half hour before you're ready to start making the cookies, put the dough into the freezer.

For the filling, mix all of the above ingredients together.

You can also used canned poppy seed filling (Solo brand) or an apricot or prune filling.

Spread flour and powdered sugar onto the surface where you will be rolling the dough.

Roll the dough out thin.

Cut into squares about 2 inches on each side.

It's easiest to cut if you use a pizza cutter.

Spread a small amount of filling (1/2 to 1 tsp) from one corner to the opposite corner.

Don't fill them too much, or the filling will spill out when it is cooking.

Fold the two remaining corners to the center, partially covering the filling.

Wet your fingertip in a small bowl of water, and seal the edge, or it may open up during the cooking.

Bake in a 375 degrees F oven for about 13 minutes.

These cookies were another ones we made during our whirl wind Christmas cookie making week. The pastry was so buttery and flakey, the walnuts filling was nutty and sweet, which went very well with the shortbread pastry. We made them into two shapes as photos show. Kids can definitely be the helpers to make some fun and lots of delicious cookies all at same time.
