Envelopes of Fudge Recipe

Sealed inside a golden crust is a delicious special delivery— a fudgy walnut filling that's almost like a brownie. These cookies are like two treats in one.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 20 min./batch YIELD:25 servings


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts


  • 1. In a large bowl, beat butter and cream cheese until smooth. Gradually beat in flour. Shape into a disk; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm enough to roll.
  • 2. For filling, in a small bowl, beat butter, sugar and baking cocoa until blended. Beat in egg yolk, vanilla and salt. Stir in walnuts.
  • 3. Preheat oven to 350°. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 12-1/2-in. square; cut into twenty-five 2-1/2-in. squares.
  • 4. Place a rounded teaspoonful of filling in center of each square. Bring two opposite corners to center. Moisten edges with water and pinch to seal. Place 1 in. apart on lightly greased baking sheets.
  • 5. Bake 18-22 minutes or until light brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.
    Freeze option: Freeze cookies in freezer containers. To use, thaw before serving. Yield: 25 cookies.
