Cut butter into dry ingredients. Add the rest of ingredients, mix, but don’t over do it.
Divide dough in half. Divide each half into ….. 1/3 and 2/3.
On floured cloth, pat out larger pieces into 8″ circles.
Now pat out smaller pieces into 6″ circles.
Take cream cheese filling and divide in half….spread each half on larger circles.
Gently set smaller dough circles on top of filling.
Freeze for at least 1-1/2 hours. Cut each circle into 8’s.
