Hungarian Treat

My niece invited us over to bake Hungarian
Treats in her new home. I'd never tried these before but it turned out to be delicious! Thanks Casey! This is a keeper!

4 sticks salted butter, room temperature
8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
5 cups flour
seedless jam, any flavor
confectioners sugar

Whip softened butter and cream cheese until smooth. Using a blender, slowly mix in 1 cup of flour at a time. Dough will become very stiff and will not be easy to mix as flour is added. Just be patient. Form into a ball, refrigerate 1 hour.

Heat oven at 375 degrees. Cut dough into 4 sections. Using confectioners sugar, roll out a section of dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Dip a round cutter in confectioners sugar and cut cookies. Using one cookie, layer with a small amount of jam on each then gently place another cut cookie on top. Bake for 10-13 minutes or until browned on bottom. Once cooled, sprinkle top with confectioners sugar.
