♥ Raspberry Treasures ♥

Ingredients:
•1/2 cup butter, softened
•1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
•1 teaspoon vanilla extract
•1 cup all-purpose flour
•1/8 teaspoon salt
•1/2 cup raspberry cake and pastry filling
•1 egg
•1 teaspoon water

Directions:
•In a large bowl, cream butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour and salt; add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Divide dough in half; wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until dough is easy to handle.

• On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8 in. thickness. Cut with a lightly floured 3-in. round cookie cutter. Place 1 teaspoon raspberry filling in the center of each. Bring three edges together over filling, overlapping slightly (a small amount of filling will show); pinch edges gently. In a small bowl, beat egg and water; brush over dough.

• Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 1 minute before removing to wire racks.

Yield: 2 dozen.
