Hungarian Cookie Treasures

loading...
My husband is 1/2 Hungarian and I was the lucky recipient of a lot of his family recipes because I liked to bake. This was one that I've changed up a bit to make it my own. It is so simple with only 6 ingredients. And you can add the jam or preserves of your liking, or sub a nut filling too. Dress it up with powdered sugar, frosting, or serve them plain. No matter what, you can bet they will get rave reviews with their buttery taste.
Blue Ribbon Recipe
This is an old-fashioned cookie, but it's more like a mini-pie in cookie form. The dough's slightly sweet but the sweetness mostly comes from the jam and powdered sugar. The jam's a little surprise inside the soft and chewy cookie. They're a little time consuming to make, but are very tasty and would be tasty to include in a cookie exchange.

Note: Don't over-chill the dough. We found it easier to work with closer to room temperature.


Ingredients

8 oz
cream cheese, softened
1 lb
real butter, softened (no substitutes here)
1 c
granulated sugar
5 c
all-purpose flour
1-1/2 c
jam or preserves of your choice -- or you can optionally use a nut filling
1 c
powdered sugar, for dusting

How to Make Hungarian Cookie Treasures

  1.  Mixing cream cheese, butter, and sugar.
  2. With using a stand mixer, add the cream cheese, softened butter, and the 1 cup of granulated sugar. Mix on medium speed until well blended.
  3.  Slowly adding flour.
  4. Add the flour one cup at a time, mixing until evenly incorporated. Remove dough from mixer and press it into a ball. Wrap in plastic and allow to rest in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  5. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  6.  Rolling out dough on the counter.
  7. Sprinkle some powdered sugar on a smooth countertop or pastry board and roll dough out to approx 1/4 inch thick sheets. Cut the dough into 2-inch circles. Re-roll excess dough as needed.
  8.  Adding jam to the center of the cut-out dough.
  9. Place 1 teaspoonful of jam or preserves in the center of circle.
  10.  Using a fork to seal the cookies.
  11. Wet the cookie edges around the jam or preserves with your finger. Then place a second circle over the jam or preserves and firmly press down around the edges to encompass the jam or preserves. Take a fork and go all around the edge to seal jam or preserves in tightly (like you would for a pie crust). Repeat this process until you have used up all the dough.
  12.  Baking the cookies in the oven.
  13. Place the cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 8-10 minutes or until cookies begin to brown.
  14.  Cookies cooling on a wire rack.
  15. Remove from oven and place onto cookie rack.
  16.  Cookies dusted with powdered sugar.
  17. If desired, dust cookies with powdered sugar.
  18.  Extra cookies in an air-tight container.
  19. These cookies keep well in the freezer for long-term storage. However, they should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator when completely cooled.
  20. Enjoy! :-)
