2 Sticks Butter softened

6 oz. Cream Cheese softened

2¾ C. Sifted Flour

1 Egg Yolk

Apricot Filling (Solo Brand)

Sift flour into a large bowl. Add softened butter to flour a little at a time with a pastry blender or fork until crumbly. Add softened cream cheese in the same manner. Work in egg yolk. Dough should be pliable enough to form ball. Divide dough into two balls. Flatten and roll one at a time into a large square about 1/8 inch thick. Cut with a wheel cutter into small squares about 1¼ inch square. Fill with apricot filling (not jam or jelly) from corner to corner.. Fold dough over from corner to corner, pinching underneath to secure. Roll in granulated sugar and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350~ for 15 minutes or until lightly brown on bottom, but just set on top. Do not over bake.

Yields about 60 cookies
