- Cream butter and cream cheese till fluffy.
- Add zest and about 2 cups flour.
- Mix well - keep adding flour, a bit at a time till you have a rollable dough.
- Chill dough for 30 minutes.
- Roll to approx. 1/4" and cut into 1 1/2 - 2" squares.
- Put a teaspoon (+/-) of filling in center of each square.
- Pull up 2 opposite corners over filling and secure with a toothpick.
- Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon.
- Bake 12-15 minutes - cookies will be very pale in color.
- While cookies are baking, mix glaze. Put it in a zip bagand clip a corner to allow a tiny drizzle hole.
NotesSince this is my favorite way to make these cookies, I thought I'd give them a place of their own.
