Can't wait to try this recipe but I'm gonna substitute date paste for the apricot filling. Sounds very similar to a recipe my high school Home Ec. teacher used to make for Christmas. I lost my copy and have been searching for AGES! I'm so excited to find this!

I made this wonderful cookie for Christmas Eve dinner... I only wished I had more... Santa ate 4 of them and from the looks of it he was searching for more! I was looking for a recipe that did not require me to run to the store for MORE ingredients. Luckily I found this - the only thing was I had only STRAWBERRY Preserves... which ended up being PERFECT! My husband and Santa have put in a request for guava paste next time... They were perfect and I chose to use my cookie cutters so we had stars, candy canes, snowflakes and tree shaped cookies and it was just perfect... GREAT recipe! (oh and since I didn't have a rolling pin - I used a wine bottle) - SO ANYONE can make this!

This was not an easy recipe to make. I had calculator figure ingredients for 24 cookies. Had trouble figuring how many TBSP of butter equaled 2/3 cup. Finally settled on 12 TBSP. Measurement for cream cheese was a bit confusing. In original recipe of 18 cookies, ellenz used "1/2 (8 oz) pkg. Twenty-four cookies called for 2/3 (8 oz) pkg. I used 10 oz, which may have been more than called for. Had a lot of cream cheese and butter with 1-1/3 cups flour. Took a long time to work into pea size. Rolling dough was a good exercise workout, trust me. Was going to use 2-1/2 inch wide heart cutout but knew there would not be enough 1/8 inch thick dough so settled on 2 inch wide. Near impossible to put 1 tsp preserves on cookie so ended up using about 1/4 tsp. Dough was so small sealing cookie with fork almost destroyed heart-shapes. After brushing with beaten egg, I sprinkled 17 cookies with brown sugar/sugar mixture. Baked light brown after 13 minutes. Watching a video to make this recipe would be a deciding factor to try making these again. Without it, I will chalk this experience up as a challenge that didn't work. Sorry I couldn't rate this with a higher score.
