  • 1 cup butter soft to room temperature
    FILLING:
  • 1 jar quality apricot preserves (or your favorite)

Instructions

  1. Cream butter and cream cheese with electric mixer, sift flour and salt together, and stir in lemon zest. With a wooden spoon blend in flour. When well blended dough will be sticky, form dough into ball and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
