1/2 pound cream cheese (at room temperature)
1/2 pound butter (at room temperature)
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 pound finely ground walnuts
1 large egg
1 cup granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 375F. Mix butter and cream cheese until smooth. Add flour, and mix again until smooth. Making this dough is easy with a food processor, hard with a mixer. Roll dough into 3 balls. Refrigerate dough to keep it from drying out. The dough can be refrigerated for 1-2 hours, but it is not necessary. Roll out 1 ball at a time and flour lightly. Roll dough out in flour or granulated sugar so it doesn't stick. Cut dough into squares or circles using cookie or biscuit cutter. Make the filling by mixing together the walnuts, egg, and sugar, and adding just enough water to obtain a sticky consistency. Add about a teaspoon of filling to each piece of cut dough. Roll squares into logs. Fold circles over and seal with a fork. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned.

My recipe for kolotchki was made with cottage cheese, butter and flour. Mmmm good. My family lived in Berwyn and always made kolotchki for all the weddings. Nice memories. Easy to make. 5 stars

We use this recipe but roll dough into logs, freeze, then slice & put a dab of preserves in the center. Yum! 5 stars

A few years ago, I lived in Ohio with a Polish boyfriend and his family. One year at Christmas time we made these cookies that were rolled into logs and baked, but this recipe and how it sounds like it would taste is very similar to the cookie log we made. Does anyone know what cookie I am talking about, or was it a rendition of this one?

I am Polish and this is the way my mother made them year after year. She would fill them with almond paste or apricot jam. If you dont make them small enough they will not taste as good... 5 stars
