        In a large mixer bowl, combine the sugar, butter, cream cheese and
   vanilla extract.  Beat on medium speed, scraping the bowl often, for about
   1 minute until well mixed. Reduce the speed to low; add the flour and salt.
   Continue beating, scraping the bowl often, for 1 to 2 minutes until well
   mixed.  Divide the dough into 4 equal portions. Wrap in plastic wrap.
   Refrigerate for at least 2 hours until firm.
        Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  On a lightly floured surface, roll out
   the dough, one portion at a time, to 1/8-inch thick. Keep the remaining
   dough refrigerated. Cut with a 2-inch round cookie cutter. Place on cookie
   sheets 1 inch apart.  Spoon 1/4 teaspoon jam onto the center of each
   circle; spread to within 1/4-inch of the edge. With a thin spatula, fold
   the dough over the jam to form a lily shape; gently press the narrow end to
   seal. The jam will show at the toop and the cookies will be cone-shaped.
   Repeat with the remaining dough and jam. Bake for 7 to 11 minutes, or until
   the edges are very lightly browned. Cool completely. Sprinkle the cooled
   cookies lightly with powdered sugar. Penny Halsey (ATBN65B).
