Cream Cheese Triangles

Makes 3 dozen


1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup butter or margarine, softened

3 oz cream cheese, softened

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 egg

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

jam-any flavor

With an electric mixer, beat together the sugar, butter, and cream cheese until light and fluffy.

Add the vanilla and egg.

Add the flour and salt; mix well.

Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

On a lightly floured surface or between 2 pieces of  wax paper, roll half the dough to 1/8 inch thickness.  (Keep the remaining dough refrigerated.)

Cut with a 2 1/2 inch round cookie cutter and place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

Place about 1/2 teaspoon of jam on the center of each round.

To shape into a triangle, fold 3 sides in without covering the jam; pinch corners to seal.

Bake for 7-10 minutes or until brown around the edges.  (Watch carefully, they burn easily.)

Cool for 1 minute, then transfer to a wire rack.

Dust with powdered sugar.
