How to make it
- In a mixer combine the cream cheese and butter until fluffy.
- Next beat in the sugar, vanilla, and pinch of salt.
- Blend in the flour just until incorporated - do not overbeat.
- Divide this dough in 1/4's, wrap each in platic wrap, and let chill for 45 minutes.
- Roll each 1/4 of dough into a 9" round on a well-floured surface.
- Paint on a thin coat of the jelly.
- Sprinkle on 1/4 of the cinnamon sugar blend.
- Sprinkle the coconut, too, lightly just for added texture.
- Cut into 12 wedges and roll each one from the wide end to the center, rest the pastry on a cookie sheet, point down. Chill for 1;/2 hr.
- Coat with a little egg white wash and sprinkle with extra cinnamon sugar.
- Bake at 350 approximately 22 minutes.
- Remove cookies from the sheets and cool on racks.
- These freeze well for a short time. They do not last long if everyone knows they're around, though.
