This is my grandma's (Sophie) kolacky recipe, and it probably came from her grandmother in Poland. My family can't get enough of these at Christmas.

  • Using a pastry blender or food processor, cut butter into cream cheese.

  • In a small bowl, sift dry ingredients together except for confectioners' sugar.

  • Work dry ingredients into butter/cream cheese mixture until you have an even, mealy texture.

  • Knead to form a stiff dough. If the dough gets too soft, refrigerate for about five minutes before continuing.

  • Roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness.

  • Using a cookie cutter or glass, cut into about 3 inch diameter cookies. Keep re-rolling dough until you have used it all. Use your thumb to make a depression in each cookie. Place a 1/2 teaspoon of filling in the depression.

  • Bake for about 20 minutes (until lightly golden). Let cool on a cookie rack. Dust lightly with confectioners' sugar. Store in an airtight container
