In a large bowl, beat butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Gradually add flour and mix well. Divide dough into two portions; cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until easy to handle.

In a small bowl, combine apples and cinnamon.

On a lightly floured surface, roll one portion of dough into a 15” x 9” rectangle; cut into 3-inch squares. Place a teaspoonful of apple mixture in the center of each square. Overlap two opposite corners of dough over filling; pinch tightly to seal.

Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough and apple mixture. Bake at 400 F for 10 – 12 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned.
