  1. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and cream cheese. Stir in the flour until well blended. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour.

  4. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until edges are browned. Cool in pans on wire racks for 15 minutes before removing from muffin tins.
