Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 6
Categories: Cookies / Desserts

2    Sticks butter, softened
6  oz  Cream cheese, room temp.
3  c  Flour
1/2  ts  Salt
3/4  c  Sugar
2  ts  Cinnamon
6  tb  Chopped raisins
6  tb  Chopped walnuts
3/4  c  Jam (apricot, strawberry, or
1    Egg yolk
1  tb  Water

Combine the butter & cream cheese & beat until well mixed. Add the flour & salt & mix until completely blended. The dough will be easier to handle if you wrap & chill it for about an hour. Stir together 1/2 C. sugar & the cinnamon. Add the raisins & walnuts & toss to coat all the pieces. Preheat oven to 375 degrees & get out some cookie sheets. Divide the dough into 6 equal parts. Keep chilled any dough you are not working on. Roll 1 of the pieces into an 8" circle. Spread with 2 Tbsp. jam & sprinkle with 2 Tbsp. of the sugar-raisin-nut mixture. Cut into 8 pie- shaped wedges. Beginning at the wide end, roll toward the point, & form a crescent shape. Roll out & form the remaining dough in the same way. Place the cookies, point side down, about 1" apart on the ungreased cookie sheets. Mix together the egg yolk & water & brush over the top of each cookie. Sprinkle each cookie with a little of the remaining 1/4 C. sugar. Bake for about 15 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove from oven & transfer to racks to cool. 48 cookies.
