Grandma always made these at Christmastime. She filled some with raspberry jam, and some with apricot jam.

8 ounces of cream cheese
3 sticks of butter
3 cups of flour
Raspberry and apricot jam
Confectioner's sugar

Cream the cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy. Add flour little by little until combined into a dough. Form into a ball, cover with plastic, and refrigerate for at least an hour.

When ready to make, heat the oven to 350 degrees and roll the dough to about a 1/4" thickness. Slice into 2" squares. Place a dab of the jam in the center of the square, then fold one corner in, then overlap the other corner in.

Bake for 15 minute, until just browning. Store in airtight container. Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar before serving.
