Ingredients

  • ½ pound sweet butter

  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

Filling:

  • 1 ½ cups dark brown sugar

  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted

  • 3 eggs

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

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.
