Makes about 30

1/2 cup margarine, softened
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1-1/3 cup sifted all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons water
1/2 cup apricot preserves
1/2 cup sugar

Beat together the margarine and cheese until creamy, then blend in the flour and water. Chill the dough for 4 to 5 hours. Preheat the oven to 370F. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat the preserves and sugar until the mixture boils and is smooth. Set aside. Divide the dough in half. Roll each half into a 10 inch square, cut into 2 1/2 inch squares. Put a scant teaspoon of the preserves in the center of each square, fold over diagonally and seal the edges. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 8 to 10 minutes.

I made these cookies 35 years ago and they were my brothers favorites. He asked for them the next few years but I had lost the recipe. I will make them and send to him this year!!! The small pleasures of life! 4 stars

Would make this again.
These are listed with the filled cookies, but I didn't think about it until I was rolling them out, that they are a crust and not a cookie. They are good, but are really more of a mini fruit pie than a cookie. Great with coffee for breakfast, but definitely not very sweet for a dessert. I was trying out recipes for my upcoming cookie exchange, and these definitely aren't anything like a cookie. 5 stars

Would not make this again.
I'm definitely a cookie baker and not a pastry chef. I found that the dough was very crumbly and difficult to form into little pastries. 2 stars
