Cut the cream cheese into small cubes and rub into the flour-butter mixture. Knead until the dough forms a ball.
Cut dough in half, wrap each half in plastic wrap and refrigerate.
To Make Filling: Stir the apricot jam until it is spreadable. In a bowl combine the sugar with the chopped nuts and grated lemon peel.
