This is a type of fruit-filled Polish biscuit called kolacky. My family can't get enough of these at Christmas.

Serves: 18 

  • 170g cream cheese, softened
  • 250g butter
  • 2 cups (250g) plain flour
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 (600g) tin apple pie filling
  • 2 tablespoons icing sugar

Preparation:45min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:1hour5min 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Lightly grease baking trays.
  2. Using a pastry blender or food processor, cut butter into cream cheese.
  3. In a small bowl, sift dry ingredients together except for icing sugar.
  4. Work dry ingredients into butter/cream cheese mixture until you have an even, mealy texture.
  5. Knead to form a stiff dough. If the dough gets too soft, refrigerate for about five minutes before continuing.
  6. Roll dough to 5mm thickness.
  7. Using a biscuit cutter or glass, cut into about 8cm diameter biscuits. Keep re-rolling dough until you have used it all. Use your thumb to make a depression in each biscuit. Place a 1/2 teaspoon of filling in the depression. Overlap the edges of the biscuits.
  8. Bake for about 20 minutes (until lightly golden). Let cool on a rack. Dust lightly with icing sugar. Store in an airtight container.

Unless I made this recipe wrong the amount of pie filling is way too much. I had a 550g tin and would have only used 1/6 of the tin. biscuit mix was good. made the 18 bisc and used the rest of the bisc mix to make a pie base with the rest of the apple and put a crumble mix on top. - 27 Apr 2012
