Just made 'em. Nothing wrong with this recipe, but it's not for beginners. It helps to have someone show you if you're not used to working with this kind of dough. It's the standard old-country pastry dough for kiffles and rugelach, ratio 1 C butter: 1 C cream cheese: 2 C flour... no added sugar to please American tastes. A few more thoughts. The cookie sheet is ungreased since there's so much butter in the dough. The dough has to be chilled and stay that way, otherwise it will spread everywhere. The filling (any kind you like, from apricot to nut to chocolate to poppyseed), also should stay to a minimum so it doesn't explode on your pan, and you might want to use a little H2O to pinch the "arms" together so they don't open during cooking.
