1/4 lb. cream cheese
1/4 lb. butter, slightly softened
1 cup flour
filling of your choice
Filling suggestions: Apple Pie Filling, Lemon Curd or Lemon Pie Filling, Rasberry Jam, Strawberry Jam, Blueberry Pie Filling, Cream Cheese/Farmer's Cheese and Pineapple, sweetened Ricotta, Deviled Ham, Turkey or Chicken Pot Pie filling, etc.
Remove the butter from the refrigerator in advance and allow it to soften only enough so that it can be mixed, not until it is soft or liquid.
Cream the cheese and butter together well. Stir in flour until mixed to a smooth dough. Chill dough for at least 45 minutes.
Thinly roll out on a surface which has been lightly dusted with flour and cut into rounds using a biscuit cutter.
Place small portions of filling in the center of each circle. Turn over and crimp together the edges with a fork, sealing well. Make several slits in the top of the dough to allow steam to escape.
If desired, brush with cream or a glaze made from 1 egg yolk mixed with 2 tablespoons water to add shine.
Bake at 375°F until light brown.
