This recipe came from my daughter's American Girl magazine. A great treat if you are studying eastern Europe.

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup cream cheese
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream
  • 2 cups flour
  • jam(tart jams such as raspberry or apricot work best)

Cream together the butter, cream cheese, salt, and sour cream. Stir in the flour. On a floured surface, knead the dough with your hands until it's smooth. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for three hours.

Place the chilled dough on a lightly floured countertop. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough thin (about 1/8"). With a table knife, cut the dough into 3 inch squares. Spread one corner of each square with jam. Starting in that corner, roll up each square, then curve in the ends to form a crescent.

Gently place the crescents on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until the edges are beginning to turn golden.

Hey, thanks for posting your kifli recipe WITH pictures. They look exactly like what my grandma used to make, and I was hoping to find the same recipe. I can't wait to try them, especially since I made some nice, tart, blackberry jam yesterday.
