Ingredients
  • 8 ounces unsalted butter, softened
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Confectioners' sugar, as needed
  • Canned fruit filling, like apricot or prune, as needed
Directions
  • In a standing mixer fitted with a paddle, or in a bowl using a hand-held beater, cream the butter, cream cheese, and sugar until well blended. Add the egg and mix until incorporated. Add the flour and mix until incorporated.

  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill overnight.

  • On a work surface sprinkled with confectioner's sugar, divide the dough into 4 equal pieces. Working in 4 batches, roll the dough out to 1/4-inch thick. Using a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter, cut out small rounds and transfer them to a parchment-lined cookie sheet.

  • Using your thumb, make a slight indentation in each cookie. Fill each indentation with the filling of your choice.

  • Chill the cookies while you preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  • Bake the cookies until lightly browned, about 15 to 17 minutes.

  • Dust with confectioners' sugar before you serve.
