    Mix all dough ingredients, in a large bowel, with your hands.
    (it must be with your clean hands
    no rings on please.)
    Once all the ingredients are well mixed let the dough.
    Important: Chill for a few hours!
  2. Sprinkle flour on your clean kitchen counter.Take half of the dough out, and leave the other half in the refrigerator.
    Roll out and cut into several 3 inch sguares with a knife.
  3. Cut slits in all 4 corners of each square.
    Fill the center with a couple teaspoons of filling.
  4. Then create the star by pulling down alternate corners of the squares.
    Press the alternate corners down into the filling to make them stick.
    Do the same with the second half of cookie dough.
  5. Bake on an ungreased coolie sheet, at 350 degrees F. for about 12-15 minutes.
    You will start to smell the butter and cream cheese. But really just take a peek, if they have a nice golden color they are done.
    Cool on wire racks. ....Sprinkle with powdered sugar...when cool.
