Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine butter and cream cheese in large bowl; beat with electric mixer at medium speed until smooth and creamy. Add in vanilla. Combine flour and salt in a small bowl, then gradually add to butter mixture, beating until it forms a soft dough. Divide dough in half and wrap in plastic to keep from drying out. Chill until firm.
  2. Preheat oven to 375. Beat egg and water in a small bowl. Roll 1 ball out to 1/8" thickness. Cut with a round cookie cutter. Brush circle lightly with egg mixture. Spoon 1/2 tsp of filling onto center. Either fold circle in half and seal, or bring 3 edges of dough to center over filling and pinch firmly. Place on ungreased cookie sheets, brush with egg mixture. Bake 12 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool 1 minute, then remove from pan to cool completely. Store in a tightly covered container.
