1/2 lb. (2 sticks) margarine
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1/4 tsp. salt
Favorite flavored jam or filling (to fill cookies with)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 C).
Cream together margarine and cream cheese. Mix in flour and salt thoroughly. Chill dough until firm.
Roll out dough to 1/8" inch thickness on a lightly floured board or pastry cloth. Cut into 3" inch circles with cookie cutter. Place jam/filling in center of each round. Fold over two opposite edges to meet in center.
Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Let cool and transfer to wire rack. Sprinkle lightly with confectioner's sugar if so desired.
Yields approximately 2 dozen cookies.
