Light and flaky, these delicate fruit-filled cookies have the look of petite and elegant pastries. We like them with a spot of raspberry or apricot filling-and a cut of Christmas tea.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour and salt; add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Divide dough in half; wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until dough is easy to handle.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8 in. thickness. Cut with a lightly floured 3-in. round cookie cutter. Place 1 teaspoon raspberry filling in the center of each. Bring three edges together over filling, overlapping slightly (a small amount of filling will show); pinch edges gently. In a small bowl, beat egg and water; brush over dough.
  3. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 1 minute before removing to wire racks. Yield: 2 dozen.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with Solo brand cake and pastry filling. Look for it in the baking aisle.

"Easy to make and very delicious! Finding the Raspberry Cake & Pastry filling was challenging but I did find it at a more upscale grocery store."
