Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
8 ounces Pk. cream cheese, softened
1 cup Butter
2 cups Flour
\N \N Apricot preserves or*
\N \N Confectioners sugar

* raspberry or other fruit preserves These are easy to make and you can use any variety of fruit preserves.

In a large bowl, cut cream cheese and butter into flour. Mix into a smooth ball. Chill dough for about 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350ø. Roll dough out onto wax paper, about ⅛- ¼ inch thick. Cut into 3-inch squares. Put 1 teaspoon preserves slightly off the center of each square. Fold dough over to enclose preserves and form a triangle, but don't come quite to the edge with the top flap. Roll dough toward the point and smooth and seal edges.

Bend in ends of rolled dough to give a crescent effect.

Bake at 350ø for 25-30 minutes, or until light brown. Remove and cool on wire racks. Roll in confectioners sugar.
