I finally had a chance to make these tasty Polish cookies this weekend, recipe courtesy of my mom. I used a cherry filling, since I have been feeling cherries a lot lately, especially with all the fresh ones I've been eating :)


1/2 lb. butter, slightly softened
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, slightly softened
2 cups flour
1 container cherry, raspberry, apricot filling (I used Solo brand)
confectioner's sugar

Blend the 1st three ingredients together, form into a ball and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 375.
Cut off a section of dough that is about a third of the ball. Roll the dough out until it is 1/4 inch thick, and using a 2 1/2 inch cookie cutter, cut out forms. Make a slight indentation in the center of each cookie, dropping about a teaspoon of pie filling in the center of each cutout. Place cutouts on parchment-lined cookie sheet.

Bake in 375 degree oven about 10 to 15 minutes until golden brown. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.

Cool on wire racks. Dust with confectioners' sugar.
