8 ounces cream cheese
8 ounces butter
3 cups flour

Jelly of your choice or canned fruit filling (poppy seed works well too)

Mix all ingredients together. Shape into a ball and  refrigerate overnight. Take out one quarter and roll out the dough on a clean surface covered in powdered  sugar. Cut out 2 inch squares with a pizza cutter. Fill the center of each square with 1/2 tsp of jelly or fruit filling (no more or it may leak out). Lift two opposite corners of the square and stick them together so the cookie is closed up. Bake 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
