  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 5 servings
  
       1 c  Butter
       1 c  Chopped dried apricots
       2 c  Flour
       2 tb Butter
       1 c  Fruit filling (see below)
       1 c  Creamed cottage cheese
       1 c  Crushed pineapple; (9 oz
            -can)
     1/4 ts Salt
       1 tb Cornstarch
            -----pineapple filling-----
     1/3 c  Sugar
            -----apricot filling-----
     1/4 c  Sugar
     1/8 ts Cinnamon
  
   These are very simple, but you will find NO better cookie anywhere! On the
   down side, they do require advanced preparation (overnight is best).
   Included are a couple of filling recipes, but a can of pre-made will work
   too. (Apricot is best)   When rolling out dough, try to keep it as chilled
   as possible. To cream the cottage cheese, it helps if you have a food
   processor or blender, but a fork an d  a strong arm will do in a pinch.
   Mix ingredients and chill at least 6 hours. Roll to 1/4 thickness. Cut
   into 2 or 3 inch squares, and place filling or preserves in center of
   square. Bring corners over filling and seal together. Bake at 350 - 25 to
   30 minutes. Remove and dust with powdered sugar. Pineapple Filling:
   Combine ingredients in sauce pan, cook stirring constantly until
   thickened. Cool. Apricot Filling: Simmer apricot 10 minutes. Add sugar and
   simmer 10 minutes more. Remove from heat and add butter and cinnamon.
   Cool.
