Why I Love This Recipe

These cute handheld desserts are flaky and tender outside with a flavorful fruit filling inside.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup butter, softened
2 packages(3oz)cream cheese, softened
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoon grated lemon peel

In a small mixing bowl, cream butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy.

Gradually beat in the flour and lemon peel. Shape dough into a ball.

Cover and refridgerate overnight.

Remove dough from the refridgerator 1 hour before rolling.

On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a 17-1/2-in. x 12-1/2-in. rectangle; cut into 2-1/2-in. squares.

Spoon 1/2 teaspoon jam onto each square.

Brush edges with water, fold pastry over filling.

Forming a triangle.

Seal edges well with a fork.
