Traditional Jewish cookies are dressed up with figs, walnuts, and a hint of orange.
Step by Step Directions
Beat sugar, butter, and cream cheese in a bowl at low speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour and salt; continue beating until dough forms.
Shape dough into a ball; flatten slightly. Wrap in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate at least 3 hours or until firm.
Heat oven to 375°F.
Combine all filling ingredients in a bowl; set aside.
Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8 - 1/4-inch thickness. Cut dough with floured 2 1/2-inch round cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Spoon 1/2 teaspoon filling in center of each round. Lift up edges of each circle at 3 points; pinch points together very firmly, forming a triangle and leaving the center open.
Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. (Tarts will open slightly as they bake.) Remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack. Cool completely.
