Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat sweet butter and cream cheese together in a bowl with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Gradually stir flour into butter until forming a dough. Shape dough into 1-inch balls and place into 3/4-inch muffin cups. Press dough into the bottom and sides of each muffin cup.
  3. Mix brown sugar, walnuts, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl. Spoon about 1 teaspoon of walnut filling into the dough cups.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until edges of cookies are lightly browned and filling is cooked through, about 25 minutes.

These are very rich and delicious! I added the flour a little at a time and found I only needed about 1 1/4 cups to be able to form a good ball. I also used paper cups and baked a bit longer than the 20 minutes. Thanks Karyn for the recipe!

This is the EXACT recipe that my Aunt Tessie made every Holiday Season.I made them for the first time earlier this year and my siblings and cousins where over joyed how I captured her recipe exact! They are easy to make, the only time consumer is pressing the dough nicely into the pettifor pan. I give my pans a quick spritz of cooking spray so they pop out with ease -

I couldn't find my grandmother's recipe for "nut cups" so I thought I'd try this one. It seemed similar to what I could remember from hers, except for the nuts. She used pecans. That was the only substitute I made. The 1" balls weren't enough dough in each muffin cup, and yes I do have the mini muffin pans. I even have the little wooden gadget that pushes the dough in and up the sides evenly so it wasn't that I was using the wrong size pan. Therefore I only got 4 1/2 dozen. Otherwise they were ALMOST as good as Granny's!
