Ingredients

  • 1

    package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened

  • 1

    cup unsalted butter, softened

  • 2

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • FILLING:

  • 1/4

    cup sugar

  • 1/4

    teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/8

    teaspoon ground allspice

  • 2

    cups finely chopped peeled tart apples

  • 2

    tablespoons cold unsalted butter

  • FINISHING:

  • 1

    large egg yolk

  • 2

    tablespoons water

  • Coarse sugar and cinnamon-sugar

Directions

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until smooth. Combine flour and salt; gradually add to butter mixture until well blended. Divide dough in half. Shape each into a ball, then flatten into a disk. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 1 hour. Combine the sugar, cinnamon and allspice; set aside. Divide each portion of dough into 12 balls. On a lightly floured surface, roll each ball into a 4-in. circle. Place a tablespoonful of chopped apples on one side. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon sugar mixture; dot with 1/4 teaspoon butter. In a small bowl, whisk egg yolk and water. Brush edges of pastry with egg wash; fold pastry over filling and seal edges well with a fork. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Brush remaining egg wash over tops. Cut slits in pastry. Sprinkle with coarse sugar and cinnamon-sugar. Bake at 425° for 11-14 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 dozen.
