- Mix filling ingredients together and set aside. Sift flour into a large bowl. Cut in butter as for pie dough. Cut in the cream cheese and work the mixture together with a fork until a round ball is formed. Cover and refrigerate overnight or at least 1 hour.
- Cut dough in 3 pieces. roll out on floured cloth or board slightly thicker than noodle dough (?). Cut into 3 x 3 inch pieces using a pastry cutter. Place teaspoonful of filling in center and overlap opposite corners. Bake in greased cookie pan at 350 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes. Remove and sprinkle with confectioners sugar.
