  • Mix flour, corn starch and salt until blended. Beat butter, cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add vanilla; mix well. Gradually add flour mixture, mixing well after each addition. Divide dough in half; flatten each into disk. Wrap individually in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour.
  • Heat oven to 350ºF. Roll out 1 disk on lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into 30 star shapes, using 3-inch cookie cutter and rerolling scraps as necessary. Place 1/2-inch apart, on parchment-covered baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Bake 20 to 25 min. or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets 1 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
  • Fill cookies with chocolate cream cheese to make 30 sandwich cookies. Spread tops with apricot jam; sprinkle with nuts.

Make Ahead

Place cooled unfilled cookies in airtight container or freezer-weight resealable plastic bag. Freeze up to 1 month. Thaw at room temperature before filling and decorating as directed.


Prepare using pecans instead of macadamia nuts.
