This is a light pastry cookie filled with dried fruit. It is a cream cheese and buttery cookie, very flaky.
I have made this once before, but I didn't remember it being quite as involved as this recipe. Actually, it wasn't that hard, just once again, that chilling and waiting thing, which I am not so good at. Although, it did work out okay, because I could walk away for awhile and deal with the inmates.
|I probably rolled mine too thin, because I halved the recipe. And I probably overfilled them, but I liked that. The filling oozed and got all caramelized. YUM!|

These cookies are reminiscent of baklava, in that they are light and flaky. I filled some with nutella and nuts, then rolled them in turbinado sugar, which tasted like a completely different cookie. But get this, I think the fruit filled are more tasty! I know. Pick your jaw up off the floor and keep reading. The nutella ones were fantastic in their own right, but I just really liked the fruit filled.
