Day 2 - Kolacky

(Day 2 of the 12 Days of Holiday cookies. Look for another recipe tomorrow.)

1/2 cup butter, softened
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup all-purpose flour
confectioners sugar
fruit preserves

Combine butter and cream cheese in large bowl; beat until smooth and creamy. Gradually add flour to butter mixture, blending until mixture forms soft dough. Divide dough in half; cover and refrigerate until firm.Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out dough, ½ a time, on floured surface (floured with 1/2 flour and 1/2 confectioners sugar) to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut into 3-inch squares. Spoon 1 teaspoon preserves in center of each square. Bring two opposite corners to center; pinch together lightly to seal. Fold sealed tip to one side; pinch to seal. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to cooling racks; cool completely.
