Total Time



1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

3 ounces cream cheese, softened

1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt


1/2 cup fig jam

3 tablespoons finely chopped walnuts

1/4 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Beat sugar, butter and cream cheese in bowl at low speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour and salt; continue beating until dough forms.

  2. STEP 2

    Shape dough into a ball; flatten slightly. Wrap in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate at least 3 hours or until firm.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine all filling ingredients in bowl; set aside.

  5. STEP 5

    Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8 - 1/4-inch thickness. Cut dough with floured 2 1/2-inch round cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

  6. STEP 6

    Spoon 1/2 teaspoon filling in center of each round. Lift up edges of each circle at 3 points; pinch points together very firmly, forming a triangle and leaving center open.

  7. STEP 7

    Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. (Tarts will open slightly as they bake.) Remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack. Cool completely.
