I made my dough the night before – chilled it in the fridge over night, the rolled it out and cut 3 ½ “ scalloped rounds…
I laid them on parchment paper for easy baking/removal...
Next came the strawberry jam filling! Yum!
See these? The blobs of jam are a bit too big – make your blobs about half…say, ½ to ¾ of a teaspoon
Next came the cinnamon cream cheese – I just mixed a few tablespoons cream cheese with about a tablespoon of powdered sugared and several shakes of ground cinnamon and mixed it well.
I got these blobs right the first time…..
I brushed all around the edges of the dough circles with beaten egg, then folded them over and pressed down the edges and lightly brushed the tops with more egg.
Then I sprinkled each with large-crystal sugar because it gives a lovely shimmer and teeny, tiny crunch. So good!
Each batch was baked at 350-degrees for 15 to 16 minutes and they came out puffed and golden……Ooooooo…….
