Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 24 muffin cups.
  2. Mix 1 cup and 2 tablespoons flour, margarine, and cream cheese in a bowl using a fork. Form dough into 24 small balls. Press and shape each ball to form a shell in the prepared muffin cups.
  3. Mix brown sugar, nuts, butter, egg, vanilla extract, and salt in a bowl. Spoon mixture into the prepared dough.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until keufels are lightly browned and filling is bubbling, about 20 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • I usually use the regular size muffin tin and make 12 large ones and I use 1 cup of very finely chopped walnuts for a very nutty taste.
  • I use my food processor fitted with the pastry attachment to mix the dough.
