Directions

  1. Beat butter and cream cheese in the bowl of a stand mixer until pale yellow and creamy. Gradually add 2 cups flour to butter mixture until the dough is too thick for the mixer. Stir remaining 2 cups flour into the butter mixture by hand and knead until dough falls off hands easily. Roll dough into a ball, place in bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and chill in the refrigerator for 8 hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Stir walnuts and sugar together in a bowl. Pour milk into walnut mixture and stir to form a paste.
  4. Turn dough onto a floured work surface and roll to desired thickness. Cut dough into 2-inch squares. Place about 1 teaspoon walnut filling in the center of each square. Roll the dough from 1 corner to the other corner around the walnut filling and transfer to a baking sheet.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until light brown, 10 to 15 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You can add different types of nuts and jams inside the cookie, such as prunes, apricots, poppy seeds, etc.
  • The number of servings depends on how thin or thick you roll the dough and how large or small you make the squares; each is personal preference.
  • Don't spend too much time 'playing' with the dough because it will get sticky and melt some. Keep the dough you are not using refrigerated.
