  • 1

    Soften butter and ice cream at room temperature. Mix together until fluffy. Add 1 cup flour at a time, mixing well. After 3 cups are added, mix dough with hands until well blended. Refrigerate for one hour. If you are refrigerating for longer than an hour, cover dough with plastic wrap.

  • 2

    Add the fourth cup of flour by hand; it is hard to work in but most of it can get absorbed. Divide dough into four equal parts.

  • 3

    Roll onto floured surface until dough is 1/8 inch thick. Cut into two inch squares. Slash corners toward the middle of the square, leaving a circle about the size of a quarter in the middle.

  • 4

    Spoon a teaspoon of filling in the middle and fold over every other corner to the center so it looks like a pinwheel.

  • 5

    Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Do not brown. Sprinkle with powdered sugar when cool.
