Total Calories: 1,010


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


Beat butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in sugar, vanilla, and salt. Gradually stir in flour to form a soft dough. Divide dough into two portions. Cover and chill several hours until firm enough to handle.

Preheat oven to 375°. Lightly grease baking sheets.

On a lightly floured surface, roll one portion of dough at a time to 1/8 -inch thickness (keep remaining dough chilled). Cut with a floured 2 1/2 -inch round cutter. Spoon rounded 1/4 teaspoon preserves in each center. Fold over opposite sides, slightly overlapping edges. Place 2 inches apart on baking sheets.

Bake 13 to 15 minutes until golden brown. Cool on wire racks. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
