Polish Kolaczki Cookie Recipe

Ingredients

8 oz cream cheese softened
2 sticks butter softened
½ cup white granulated sugar
2 cups all purpose flour
1½ cups favorite jam any flavor
Powder Sugar For Tops after baking
.

Instructions

Cream together softened cream cheese, butter, and white granulated sugar. Blend in flour until dough forms a dough ball.
On a flour surface, cut dough ball into four equal parts. This will help make manageable dough size.
Roll out each quarter of dough to about ⅛ inch thickness. Cleanly cut squares 2 inches wide.
Smear a thin layer of your favorite jam diagonally on the cut squares. Don’t over fill otherwise it will pop the dough open and ooze all over.
Fold the other end of the cookie over the jam smear and place on a cookie sheet. These cookies don’t spread so you can put the cookies close together on baking sheet.
Bake in an oven at 350 °F for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately place on a wire rack to cool for 10 minutes. Put cooled cookies in the refrigerator so the jam and cookie will finish setting.
Sprinkle Powder Sugar on Top.
