Original recipe makes 4 dozen Change Servings


  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour and salt. Cut in the cream cheese and margarine until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle on the milk and vinegar. Work the dough by hand until it holds together in a ball. Divide dough into 4 pieces and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out each piece of dough into a rectangle measuring 7 1/2x10 inches. Cut the dough into 2 1/2 inch squares. Place a 1/2 teaspoon dollop of apricot preserves onto the center of each square. Fold each corner to the center and pinch together.
  4. Place cookies on an unprepared cookie sheet, and bake for about 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Drizzle with glaze when cool.
  5. In a small bowl stir together 3/4 cup of confectioners' sugar with 2 tablespoons of water until smooth. Drizzle over the cookies.

This is one of my family favorites as well! It was lost along the way. Thanks for posting it. It is an art to get just the right amount of filling AND have them stay sealed. A tiny bit of water on the edge helps. Also I do not use the glaze, I gently roll them in powder sugar instead while they are still warm. I have discovered that they are too fragile for hot humid summer days of North Georgia. They are usually fine in December though.

I liked the taste, but mine didn't really stay together. I followed the directions exactly, but while they were baking, they came apart and apricot preserves leaked out of them and all over my pans. I did not use the glaze.

I have been trying to work this recipe but am having huge problems with it. It rises too much to fold over the cookie. I tried making balls and filling them, but again, it expanded too much to be filled. I couldn't fold them over because they kept coming apart. Honestly, the dough is sooooo tasty, I will do anything to make this work, but I cannot seem to not end up without the apricots all over the parchment paper, (thank goodness for parchment paper!!!) Someone please help me to fill these without all the filling falling out!
