  • Cream together the cream cheese and butter.
  • To this, add the flour - in small portions by hand.
  • When it comes together, turn over on a lightly floured surface and add the rest of the flour to form a dough (IT WILL BE SOFT - but it should be smooth)
  • Refrigerate for about 1 hour.
  • Roll out to about 1/4 inch thick on a floured surface.
  • Cut into squares about 2 x 2 and fill center with about 1/4 tsp of the lekvar.
  • Bring together opposite corners and pinch and fold over.
  • Bake on a lightly greased baking sheet for about 15 - 20 minutes until lite gold at 350F (Be careful not to let them burn).
  • While still warm, role in powdered sugar and let cool.
  • Once cooled, repeat the powdered sugar coating once more.
  • You can use any flavor lekvar or even an almond paste.
  • It just has to be really thick so it doesn't run while baking.
