Sophie's Kolackys

6 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons white sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
cans of Solo filling
2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease cookie sheets.
Using a pastry blender or food processor, cut butter into cream cheese.
In a small bowl, sift dry ingredients together except for confectioners' sugar.
Work dry ingredients into butter/cream cheese mixture until you have an even, mealy texture.
Knead to form a stiff dough. If the dough gets too soft, refrigerate for about five minutes before continuing. Roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness.

Using a cookie cutter or knife, cut into 3 inch squares. Keep re-rolling dough until you have used it all. In each square place a teaspoon of filling. Place two corners of the square toward center. Beat one egg white by hand; just enough to brush the top of the kolachky. Sprinkle lightly with granulated sugar.

Bake for about 20 minutes (until lightly golden). Let cool on a cookie rack. Store in an airtight container.
