Festive Triangle Tarts
Get started!



1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup sugar


1/4 teaspoon salt


1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

3 ounces cream cheese, softened

3 tablespoons cold water


1/2 cup jam or preserves

3 tablespoons finely chopped nuts


3/4 cup powdered sugar

1/4 teaspoon almond flavoring

3 to 4 teaspoons water

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine flour, sugar and salt in bowl; add butter and cream cheese. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add water; continue beating just until dough forms.

  2. STEP 2

    Shape dough into a ball; divide in half. Flatten each half; wrap in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate at least 3 hours or until firm.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine all filling ingredients in bowl; set aside.

  4. STEP 4

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  5. STEP 5

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

  6. STEP 6

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

  7. STEP 7

    Combine powdered sugar, 1/4 teaspoon almond flavoring and enough water for desired glazing consistency in small bowl. Drizzle over tarts.

Tip #1

If necessary, cut large pieces of fruit in jam into smaller pieces.
