Set the Table 2017 | Week 50

Let it Snow + Let’s make my Grandmother Millie’s Kolaczki 🎄🎄

2 cups flour (I used organic spelt flour or you can also use your favorite gluten free blend)
1 cup soft butter (or vegan butter)
8 oz cream cheese (or vegan cream cheese)
1/4 tsp salt 

Cream butter and cream cheese together in a stand mixer. Add flour. Form into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate over night. Divide into four parts. (1/4 part makes over two dozen cookies. So you will have at least 100 cookies with this recipe). Using a light dusting of flour, roll out dough into a thin layer. If using gluten free flour, use plastic wrap as it will stick and be less elastic than regular flour. Press out circles with a small glass. Continue to form leftover dough scraps into a ball and roll out until none is left. Place 1/4 tsp of jam in center of each circle. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 min or 325 degrees convection for 8 minutes. Once cooled, sift powdered sugar over the kolaczki cookies like a lovely Christmas snow ❄️ ❄️❄️ ❄️

Xoxo My grandma Millie + Me
