Yield:
2 dozen keufels

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup margarine

  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • ¾ cup chopped nuts

  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

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.

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.
