This recipe is very old and requires some advance preparation. Gramma says despite this, they are excellent for breakfast.
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3 ounces cream cheese
- 1 cup flour
- 2 tablespoons cream
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 egg white
Cream the butter and cream cheese together, and make a thick paste by adding the flour, cream, and salt.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled (the original recipe says "overnight").
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Roll out the dough until 1/2" thick and cut out into rounds about 4" across.
Fill with jelly, and fold over in half.
Seal the edges with egg and brush with milk.
Bake about 15 minutes.
