This was my Mother's recipe. Christmas was a time for Mom's Peach Tarts in my house growing up. After much research, I come to find out they are actually named Kolacky. They are so delicious but take a little time.
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup butter
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 jar of Peach Preserves
1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar for dusting
Place the cream cheese and butter in a large bowl; beat with electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Beat 1/2 cup of confectioners’ sugar into the butter mixture. Slowly beat in the flour; mix well. Cover bowl and refrigerate at least 12 hours, or overnight.
Preheat an oven to 375
On a well floured board, roll out chilled dough to 1/8 inch. Use a pizza wheel to cut dough into 2 1/2 inch squares. Spoon approximately 1 teaspoons of filling in the center of each square; do not overfill. Fold opposite corners of each square into the middle pinching dough together in center.
Transfer cookies to an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake the tarts in the preheated oven until set but not brown, about 12 minutes.
Remove to racks to cool. Dust cooled kolacky with remaining powdered sugar.
