DIRECTIONS

  • In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter, cream cheese and sugar.
  • Add the eggs, orange rind, and vanilla; mix well.
  • Combine flour, salt and baking powder; add to the creamed mixture and blend well.
  • Cover and chill for at least 4 hours; make sure dough is firm.
  • In the mean time, combine all filling ingredients in a small saucepan. Cook and stir over low heat until smooth. Set aside to cool.
  • On a floured surface, divide dough in half; roll each half into a 12"x11" rectangle. Spread filling over rectangles of dough. Carefully roll up into tight jelly roll logs. Wrap logs in waxed paper.
  • Chill overnight.
  • Remove waxed paper; cut rolls into 1/4" slices. Place slices on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Remove cookies to wire racks to cool.
