Nutjammer Cookies


1 cup butter, at room temperature
1 package cream cheese (8 ounces), at room temperature
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups finely chopped nuts
1 jar apricot jam (12 ounces)
2 teaspoons sugar
1/3 cup confectioners' sugar


Cream butter and cream cheese. Add flour and baking powder. Mix to form a dough. Chill dough for 2 to 3 hours. Mix nuts, jam, and sugar for filling.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Divide dough into 4 equal parts, working with one-quarter of the dough at a time. Refrigerate remaining dough.
