Ragalich (Raspberry Pinwheels)

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 1,170


1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 3/4 cups flour
1/2 cup red raspberry preserves
1/2 cup walnuts finely chopped


In a large mixer bowl at medium speed, beat butter or margarine and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in 1/2 cup sugar, vanilla and salt until blended. At low speed, gradually beat in flour until well mixed and mixture forms a ball. Divide dough into two portions. Wrap each in waxed paper and chill for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly grease baking sheets. On a lightly floured surface, roll one portion of dough at a time to 1/4 -inch thickness, forming a 14 x 10-inch rectangle. Spread each with 1/4 cup of the preserves, sprinkle with 1/4 cup of the walnuts. Roll as for a jelly roll, starting from the long side. With a sharp knife, cut 1/2 -inch slices. Dip one cut side in sugar. Place, sugar-side up, 1 inch apart on baking sheets. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool cookies on wire racks.

Store in an airtight container.
