Serves 3 dozen | Prep Time 20 minutes | Cook Time 10-13 minutes

Ingredients

3 cups unsifted flour

3 tablespoons sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 sticks of butter (room temperature)

8 oz cream cheese (room temperature)

3 egg yolks

3/4 lb Apricot Butter

Confectioners Sugar


In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar and salt



In a stand mixer or by hand, cream the butter and cream cheese together until smooth



Add the egg yolks to the cream cheese mixture



Slowly add the flour mixture to the cream cheese mixture



Mix until combined and smooth



Divide dough into 5 balls and refrigerate overnight



When ready to roll the dough let it come almost to room temperature



Using a rolling pin take a dough ball and roll into a circle



Cut out circles using round cookie cutter or a white wine glass like I did (perfect size)


Now take the circle and very gently roll once or twice to make an oval shape. The dough should be thin but workable


Using 1/2 teaspoon of the filling place it in the middle of the oval and spread it around


Roll the dough length wise gently pulling the ends to lengthen the kiffle


After all the kiffles are rolled, place seamed side down on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet


Bake at 375 degrees for 10-13 minutes until lightly browned



Cool on a cooling rack



When ready to serve sprinkle with confectioners sugar
