Chopped dried apricots
Fruit filling (see below)
Creamed cottage cheese
(9 oz can)
These are very simple, but you will find NO better cookie anywhere! On the
down side, they do require advanced preparation (overnight is best).
Included are a couple of filling recipes, but a can of pre-made will work
too. (Apricot is best) When rolling out dough, try to keep it as chilled
as possible. To cream the cottage cheese, it helps if you have a food
processor or blender, but a fork an d a strong arm will do in a pinch.
Mix ingredients and chill at least 6 hours. Roll to 1/4" thickness. Cut
into 2 or 3 inch squares, and place filling or preserves in center of
square. Bring corners over filling and seal together. Bake at 350 - 25 to
30 minutes. Remove and dust with powdered sugar. Pineapple Filling:
Combine ingredients in sauce pan, cook stirring constantly until
thickened. Cool. Apricot Filling: Simmer apricot 10 minutes. Add sugar and
simmer 10 minutes more. Remove from heat and add butter and cinnamon.
