Beat together the butter and cream cheese until smooth and well combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour and salt. Add the flour mixture to the cream cheese mixture and beat to combine.
Separate the dough into four equal parts and wrap each in plastic wrap. Press the dough into a disk and place it into the refrigerator to chill for at least two hours.
When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Remove one disk of dough from the refrigerator and place it on a lightly floured surface. Roll out the dough until it’s around ⅛ inch thick. Use a pastry cutter to cut out 2-inch squares from the dough.
Place a small amount of apricot preserves on top of each square. Bring the two opposite corners together and pinch them over the top of the preserves.
Continue rolling, cutting, and filling the dough until it has all been used.
Place the prepared cookies on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 12 to 14 minutes, until the bottoms are golden brown. Continue cooking in batches until all the cookies have been baked.
Allow the cookies to cool on the pan for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. When the cookies are cool, sprinkle powdered sugar over the top before serving.
