One of my favorite cookies to eat are Kolacky.  I enjoy the apricot preserves the most, but I find strawberry is a favorite for my friends.  They seem a little troublesome to make, but they are well worth it.  The following recipe yields a delicious dough, flaky and moist cookies.  Try not to put in too much of the preserves because they won’t stay closed while baking.  I usually sprinkle with extra powdered sugar if I have this trouble. 

Ingredients

1-1/2 -2 cups flour

½ teaspoon baking powder

1 cup butter (2 sticks)

1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese

1 tablespoon milk

1 tablespoon sugar

1 egg yolk beaten

Fruit preserves

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Sift flour and baking powder; set aside.

Cream together butter, cream cheese, milk and sugar.  Blend in egg yolk.

Add flour mixture to above and mix until smooth.

Roll out dough on a floured surface to 1/8” thickness.

Cut with a round cookie cutter or glass. 

Place each cookie on cookie sheet

Add ½ teaspoon of preserves in the center of cookie. 

Fold in two opposite sides of cookie and pinch together at the center. 

Brush with egg white to help brown while baking.

Bake for 10 minutes.

Sift powdered sugar over cookie after cooling.

Enjoy.
