Margaret's favorite: Polish kolaczki

Margaret is a wonderfully warm friend - truly beautiful inside and out - whom I've met through work. She's very caring, down-to-earth and remembers to ask how you (and your mom, sister, best friend, etc.) are doing. She is from a very Polish family, and her mom dictated this recipe to her from memory:

Polish kolaczki
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese
2 sticks unsalted butter
2 egg yolks
2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 can apricot pastry filling

Mix cream cheese, butter and egg yolk. Mix together flour and baking powder and add to cream cheese mixture. Roll dough out to 1/8-inch. Cut circles using cookie cutters. Put apricot filling in and roll up. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
