  1. In a large bowl, cut butter and cream cheese into flour until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Using your hands, blend mixture together until smooth dough forms, about 3 minutes. Pat into a rectangle; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm. For filling, combine the walnuts, sugar, milk and vanilla.
  2. Unwrap dough and place on a lightly floured surface. Roll into a 17-1/2-in. x 10-in. rectangle; cut into 2-1/2-in. squares. Place a level teaspoonful of filling in the center of each square. Moisten edges with water; fold in half and seal with a fork. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Brush with egg. Bake at 375 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool. Dust with confectioners' sugar.

These cookies take a little time to make but are well worth it. Basically followed the directions as given. Note that I had to bake them for 16 minutes. Made one batch with walnuts & vanilla in ...

I really like the recipe. I did make a few changes. My husband thought the pastry was kind of blah so I added 1/4 c sugar to sweeten it a little. Also when I made the second batch I added a litt...

I also switched the walnuts for almonds and used almond extract instead of vanilla. Additionally, I folded the corners of the square to create triangles instead of rectangles...they looked much...

These cookies were amazing. They became my family's favorite from day one. I couldn't cut the squares right so I used a 2.5 inch glass and made them in circles. Do not overfill as they will lea...

This recipe is amazing!! It is time consuming to make but well worth the effort. The only change I made to the recipe was to fold the dough into triangles instead of rectagles. My first ba...

these are great but require patience. I followed the recipe to a 'T'. I found that once you put the walnut mix in the center, spread it out oblong some and then REALLY pinch those edges, using t...
