Cream Cheese Kolacky

Cream Cheese Kolacky The dough for these cookies is what makes them exceptional. I always quadruple this recipe for the holidays. Most popular fillings are peach, apricot, raspberry and date. Use your imagination! This year I’m trying Michigan cherry preserves and cranberry marmalade. You better hide a few for Christmas day–these are the ones that go first!
