Makes about 36 cookies, 1 per serving

These pastrylike goodies are a treat for breakfast or with tea as well as after dinner. Choose your favorite flavor of preserves or marmalade for the filling.


  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup cold butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup apricot or raspberry preserves, or orange marmalade
  • 3 ounces (1/2 cup) white chocolate, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)


Place the flour in a mixing bowl. With a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in the butter or margarine till the mixture resembles small peas. Stir in the sour cream and vanilla till the dough just holds together. On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough about 10 times. Divide the dough in thirds. Wrap in plastic wrap.

On a lightly floured surface, roll one third of the dough into a 10-inch circle. Spread the dough with a scant 2 tablespoons of the preserves or marmalade. Sprinkle with one third of the white chocolate. Cut the dough into 12 wedges. Starting on the outside edge, roll up each wedge jelly-roll style. Place, point-side down, 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough, preserves or marmalade and chocolate.

In a small mixing bowl, stir together the sugar and, if desired, cinnamon; sprinkle over each cookie.

Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or till light golden brown. Remove the cookies from the pans and cool on a rack. Store in a tightly covered container.
