TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + chilling Bake: 15 min./batch YIELD:60 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups butter, softened
  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • FILLING:
  • 4 cups finely chopped walnuts
  • 1-1/2 to 2 cups sugar
  • 6 tablespoons evaporated milk
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream the butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks. Combine flour and baking powder; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Cover and chill overnight.
  • 2. In a small bowl, combine filling ingredients (mixture will be thick). Divide dough into fourths (dough will be sticky). On a well-sugared surface, roll out each portion into a 12-in. x 10-in. rectangle. Cut into 2-in. squares. Place about 1 teaspoon filling in the center of each square. Fold over two opposite corners; seal tightly.
  • 3. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: 10 dozen.
